Participate in the Windsor Bicycling Committee, which advises Council and City departments on matters relating to bicycling in Windsor.
Keep up to date on environmental assessments being conducted in Windsor and attend public open house events, where you can provide comments regarding the inclusion of bicycle lanes as part of road reconstruction projects.
For a list of current studies that are underway and how to get involved, see the second half of the Environmental Assessments & Master Plans Page.
Make active use of the trails that exist throughout Windsor. Advocate for added green space during the next Official Plan Review. In addition to their environmental benefits, parks and trails often contribute to higher real estate value, because residential properties adjacent to these areas are generally more desirable.
The Strategic Rail Study, completed in 2008, identified the potential for certain rail corridors to be converted into other uses, including trails. One example of railway tracks that have been converted to recreational trails is the Hamilton to Brantford Rail Trail in Ontario. Interested residents can contact the Federal Government to express their support for rail rationalization.
