Population: 12,963


Program Description

The Town of Gravenhurst is in the early stages of implementation of the age friendly active transportation plan. Over the previous number of years, this document has been incorporated in many of the policies and plans that the municipality has completed. Implementation of a mix of Near-Term and Short-Term projects are starting and continuing through 2018 with many alternative sources moving forward. In addition to the Age Friendly Active Transportation Plan, the recently passed Official Plan and the Municipal Strategic Plan focus on the importance of Gravenhurst being an age friendly community. Goal 2 of our Strategic Plan is to Build a Safer, Healthier & more Environmentally Sustainable Community.

Currently, internal municipal staffs are beginning the process of developing an internal working group and other projects are being completed by both municipal staff and partner organizations such as the Business Improvement Area and the Chamber of Commerce.
