 In News

Clearview Township is one of 13 recipients of county funding for trail development.

This year, the County is investing almost $350,000 to help fund 13 projects throughout Simcoe County under the Trails Connecting Communities Program (TCCP). This 50/50 cost sharing scheme provides up to $30,000 per project, to expand, create, and/or enhance the extensive network of trails across Simcoe County.

“Since 2009, when the Trails Connecting Communities Program was established, the County has provided approximately $2.7 million in funding to assist in the completion of 119 trail and active transportation projects across all 16 member municipalities,” said Warden George Cornell. “These funds will enhance and expand our developing multi-use trails network to promote environmentally friendly links between our communities, as well as providing safe and accessible ways for residents and visitors to relax, unwind and exercise.”

To qualify for County TCCP funding, projects must enhance an existing trail or establish a key trail linkage to improve network connectivity and improve trail accessibility for people with disabilities in accordance with applicable provincial standards.

Other municipalities to receive 2022 TCCP funding are: Collingwood, Wasaga Beach, Tiny, Tay, Springwater, Bradford West Gwillimbury, Essa, Innisfil, Midland, New Tecumseth, Oro- Medonte, Ramara and Severn.
