    Dufferin Forest Recreation 20 Year Plan needs your Feedback..an elaboration

    Thanks to tyh83 for posting on the recent info on the Dufferin Forest Rec Plan. Here is the extended version if you are interested! Grab a beverage and enjoy the read! Thanks for your time.

    …………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

    So for the past several years there has been planning in place to form a Recreation Plan for the Dufferin County Forests. It began with a committee that had done a great deal of great work to be eventually be put on hold mid-late 2014.

    A second committee was formed and has been working on the Recreation Plan for the last year and a half. A Draft Recreation Plan has now been approved by that committee and by Dufferin County Council to be put out for public comment. The feedback from the public consultation will then be considered by the Committee and then after any adjustments to the Draft Plan, it will be sent back to Council for final approval.

    I'm encouraging everyone to please review the Draft Plan and send in your feedback. The more positive feedback the Committee receives for the Draft Plan, the more likely it will remain unchanged. If there are specific items that you would like to see approved, please feel free to be specific in your comments as well.

    Please keep in mind that anyone not agreeing items in the Draft Plan will very likely be sending in their comments and attending the Open Houses to express their opinions. The issue that may arise is that it is not as common to provide feedback if one agrees with an issue. It is therefore equally important for the supporters to also demonstrate their positive support though e-mails and Open House participation as this feedback will be guiding the next steps. Attending one (or both) of the Open Houses would be a very positive action.

    The dates and locations for the Open House meetings are:

    Weds Feb 8th, 55 Zina Street, The Sutton Room, Orangeville from 3pm-8pm.

    Sat. Feb 11th Dufferin Museum, 936029 Airport Rd, Mulmur (Hwy 89 & Airport Rd.) from 10am-4pm.

    To provide feedback by e-mail as well, go to:

    http://www.dufferincounty.ca/governm...s#DEPARTMENTAL CONTACTS

    and click on the blue FEEDBACK tab at the left side of the screen.

    You can also e-mail as well (why not do both?) the Forest Manager at

    [email protected] (just cut and paste e-mail address)

    The closing date for comments is March 31st.

    This Recreation Plan is intended to be in place for a twenty year period from its date of implimation. The importance of public input cannot be understated. Please send this information to anyone or any groups you may know that would have an interest in or who rides, or would like to ride Dufferin Forest now or in the next 20 years. Any questions, please contact me through the "CONTACT" tab at: Team Van Go
    Thank you for your time and in advance for your input.

    Here's the Draft Recreation Plan:
