Avon Region Active Transportation Plan Final Report

“Active Avon” is an active transportation plan designed to improve options for safe and convenient non-motorized transportation across the Avon Region over the next eight years. The collaboration between the region’s three municipalities - the Municipality of West Hants, the Town of Windsor, and the former Town of Hantsport - sets a unique precedent for a regional approach to active transportation. It is the first time that both urban and rural Nova Scotian municipalities have come together to forge an active transportation strategy spanning beyond the boundaries of individual municipalities.
