TRailway Consultation

| Print This Page |

The Town of Paradise has a number of trails throughout the community. They are popular with residents of all ages, and are used year round for walking, running, cycling, snow-shoeing and cross-country skiing. They promote a healthy lifestyle among residents and help with connectivity throughout the Town.

In 2020, the Town is planning to complete upgrades to the section of the T’Railway trail within Paradise (McNamara Drive west to the Paradise / CBS boundary). Funding has been allocated from the Trans Canada Trail Foundation to complete this work. In order to receive the funding, the Town must designate the six kilometres of the T’Railway as non-motorized. Currently, motorized vehicles such as ATVs can use this section of the trail, however, ATVs are not permitted on the T’Railway outside the Paradise boundary. 

We Want to Hear From You

All trail users are important to the Town of Paradise and the Town is seeking input from residents about the use of the T’Railway. The Town has hired Tract Consulting for the public engagement work. They will conduct a survey and host a public meeting to gather public feedback. 

Survey 

The survey closed March 4, 2020.

Public Meeting

Tract Consulting held a public meeting to share the survey results and get public feedback about designating the section of T'Railway in the Town of Paradise as non-motorized. The meeting was Tuesday, March 10 at 7 p.m. at the Paradise Double Ice Complex. 

Public Meeting Presentation

Next Steps: 

With the survey and public meeting completed, Tract as the consultants will complete a report on the public consultation process and submit it to the Town.

The Town will the post the report to this webpage when it is received. 

Council will review the report and determine the recommendation it will make to the provincial government on whether or not to designate the section to T’Railway as motorized.  

Once Council has made a determination, it will be announced publically. (It is expected that it will take a couple of months to complte the process.)
