The second survey about the Haliburton County Rail Trail can be accesed through the link provided below. This survey includes a section on evaluating options that have come forward through the engagement process and were reviewed at the workshop held on February 9th. It also includes some questions that intend to gain further clarification regarding support for, or agreement on, a number of items that have been raised throughout the community engagement strategy.
You are encouraged to forward the link to the survey on to others that you think have an interest in providing input regarding the future of the trail. The survey will close on Monday, February 27th at 5:00 pm.

The Rail Trail Task Group would like to thank everyone that participated in the workshops in November and December, and also individuals that completed the survey. As you can imagine, there was a great deal of information collected that is now being analyzed in order to make sense of what was said and present it back to the community. The Task Group is currently planning two opportunities for the public to evaluate the various options for development, operations and management of the Rail Trail that are emerging from the data. The first is the Evaluating Options Workshop, which is being scheduled for Thursay, February 9th from 6:30-9:30 pm - Minden Hills Community Centre. The second is a brief survey that will be launched around the same date in order to once again reach a broader audience. The link to the survey will be posted here on the County's website and will be promoted and distributed widely.
An action plan that outlines the community’s vision(s) for the development of the Rail Trail, how the trail should operate and a proposed management structure was presented to the Ad Hoc Working Committee for the Haliburton County Rail Trail (public meeting). The Task Group and Ad Hoc Working Committee will collaboratively determine what will go forward for consideration by County Council as per the Community Development Planning framework for the engagement strategy and Spectrum of Public Participation.Project OverviewTask Group ProfilesEngagement Strategy
