Plans for five new rest areas along the Millennium Trial will be presented at public meetings this week.
The rest areas are being patterned after the one in Wellington on West Street that has been in place for three years. The new rest areas may include an information kiosk, a bicycle repair stand, a bicycle parking rack, a picnic table, a seasonal washroom, and, in most locations, a parking lot.
The Ad Hoc Millennium Trail Upgrade Committee is hosting public design review meetings for trailheads. The committee will take the public’s feedback into consideration when these plans are presented to Council for approval. Construction is slated to take place in the spring of 2020.
