The Town of Collingwood (Town) is experiencing significant growth and is anticipated to reach a population of 42,700 by 2051. To compensate for this proposed growth, the Town is initiating a Transportation Master Plan (TMP) to enhance our existing transportation network.
The TMP will provide the long-range planning necessary to identify needs, establish priorities between vehicles, active transportation (e.g., cycling, trails) and transit, and provide a planning framework for future infrastructure improvements and network development.
The TMP will provide strategies for addressing localized problem areas or desired enhancements within the larger transportation network, as well as crafting policies both for effective management of the network as a whole and for evaluating ongoing requests for traffic calming and controls.
This study is being undertaken in accordance with Approach #1 of the Master Planning Process, as outlined in the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (MCEA) (March 2023). As such, the TMP will generally address Phases 1 and 2 of the MCEA process and will form the basis for the recommended Schedule B and C transportation infrastructure projects identified within the TMP report.
