Are you interested in creating a more active community? Elgin St. Thomas Public
Health is starting a new committee for people that are interested in promoting running,
walking and cycling within Elgin St. Thomas.
A group of interested citizens met recently and decided to hold monthly meetings
to work towards creating a culture of being active within Elgin St. Thomas. The
next meeting is February 11th, 2013 from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. at Elgin St. Thomas Public
Health (located at 99 Edward Street, St. Thomas). The group plans to continue to
meet monthly on the 2nd Monday of the month.
Some of the draft objectives of this new committee will include:
- to build a community culture that supports active transportation;
- to build a healthier, accessible and connected community;
- to promote the safe use of local trails and pathways;
- to advocate for new and improved active transportation routes including amenities
for cycling, hiking, walking, running and rolling in Elgin St. Thomas.
