Ontario Trails News - Oxford Approves Trail Study - change due to Trailhead Ontario June 2012

Oxford County Approves Trails Masterplan Study!

Hi Patrick,
The Oxford County Trails Council petitioned the County council and asked for $75,000 to do a trails master plan for Oxford. The budget came down yesterday and we were approved, along with discussion that the council wants to become more actively involved in trails development in Oxford. I believe that this 180 degree shift in thinking from past years is partially due to bringing Trailhead to Oxford County...(Trailhead Ontario is the provincial trails conference and it was held in Ingersoll in June 2012)
