NOTICE OF STUDY COMMENCEMENT

 
About the Project
The City of Barrie and the consulting firm WSP are undertaking an update to the Multi-Modal Active Transportation Master Plan (MMATMP) to assess future transportation needs to support growth to the 2041 horizon year based on the Provincial Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe.  The MMATMP will assess improvements to the City’s road network as well as active transportation and transit.  The study area encompasses the entire City.
 
The MMATMP will:
• Review existing conditions;
• Identify transportation improvements, including road widenings and active transportation/transit improvements, to accommodate growth;
• Identify, assess alternatives based on modal split and identify a preferred alternative solution; and
• Develop a long-range implementation plan to 2041.
Study Process
The MMATMP Update is being conducted in accordance with Approach #2 of the Master Plan process as prescribed in the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) document for municipal road projects.  The Master Plan Update will address Phases 1 and 2 of the five-phase Municipal Class EA Process. 
 
Public Information Centre
The study process will include a Public Information Centre (PIC).  A PIC will be an informal drop-in session where project information including background information, assessment of existing conditions and preliminary recommendations on proposed improvements will be presented to receive public input.  The PIC will be scheduled in 2018.  Advance notice of the PIC will be advertised in The Barrie Examiner, the project webpage and sent to agencies and interested individuals that have requested to be added to the MMATMP Project mailing list.
