MLA, Keith Colwell, was in East Preston on August 24 to announce $11,500 in funding from the Connect2 sustainable transportation grant program, to the East Preston Day Care Centre to develop a plan to increase active transportation and transit use in the area. "Having a solid plan is the foundation for building the infrastructure needed to give people more options to walk and cycle in their community," said Mr. Colwell.
The project will look at ways to build capacity and identify mobility opportunities in the area.
"I'm excited for the possibilities an active transportation plan will bring to the community," said Mike Brownlow, board chair of the centre. "Everyone in the community benefits when they're able to walk, wheel and bike safely. We're really pleased to receive this funding and eager to get this plan moving."
