TCAT is thrilled to announce that the 2011 Complete Streets Forum, our fourth annual active transportation policy conference, was a resounding success. Despite an uncertain political climate and a very rainy start to the day, over 200 engaged delegates from communities around and outside the Toronto region came together to learn, share, and connect with leading active transportation experts. It was a diverse crowd, with about half representing the public sector, and approximately 20% each from the private and non-profit realms.
On April 20th, Toronto's Executive Committee voted in support of the recommendation to eliminate the City’s 21 advisory committees, including the Toronto Cycling Advisory Committee and the Toronto Pedestrian Committee.
As reported in a recent TCAT News, CIMA+, a Canadian consulting engineering firm, was retained by the Regional Public Works Commissioners of Ontario (RPWCO) to review the Ontario Highway Traffic Act (HTA) and determine what amendments may be appropriate to support and promote active transportation in Ontario.
As announced in a recent TCAT News, the TCAT Steering Committee is currently accepting applications for new steering committee members. This is an excellent opportunity to provide strategic guidance into our work and to help TCAT grow and thrive.
Potential steering committee members should submit an expression of interest by email to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Monday, January 17, 2011. Please include:
