The Town of Bracebridge is developing its first-ever transportation master plan (TMP) with support from the District of Muskoka and in partnership with IBI Group. The TMP is a long-range planning exercise that outlines transportation infrastructure needs and priorities for the future by:
- Providing key recommendations on how the Town and District can improve transportation networks in Bracebridge for all modes of travel including driving, transit, cycling, walking and the movement of goods;
- Providing the framework to lead the town towards a safer, more accessible, equitable and sustainable transportation network while also minimizing traffic congestion, preserving local character, and protecting the environment;
- Supporting local and inter-regional connections for all modes of travel while strengthening local economic and tourism opportunities; and by
- Defining policies and long-term strategies that will respond to the needs, opportunities and priorities of the Town and its residents.
The TMP is being conducted in accordance with the requirements of phases one and two of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment, which is an approved process under the Environmental Assessment Act.
