We’ve got a draft outdoor recreation plan!

This year, the County of Dufferin is embarking on an extensive public consultation of the Recreational Use Policy for the Dufferin County Forest. The goal is to have a broader Recreation Plan for both the County Forest and the County-owned Rail Trail, with consideration for the best ways to use these spaces as well as what services and facilities to implement in the future.

Earlier in 2022, Dufferin residents weighed in on what recreation meant to them, and we used those ideas to develop a draft outdoor recreation plan.

Now, we’re opening the draft plan up for public feedback. Check it out and let us know your thoughts via any of the methods below.

In person opportunities to discuss the draft plan with County staff:
Thursday, August 4, 3:00 pm - 7:00 pm at the Edelbrock Centre, 30 Centre St., Orangeville
Saturday, August 6, 11:00 am - 4:00 pm at the Museum of Dufferin, 936029 Airport Road at Highway 89, Mulmur

Feedback is due by August 31, 2022 and participants have a chance to win 1 of 3 $50 gift cards to an independent business of their choice in Dufferin County.

If you wish to be added to our email notification list so you can keep up to date on the process and other County Forest news, go to http://eepurl.com/RtadP.
