Naming of multi-use trails is important for some of the same reasons that streets are named. It helps users to:

  • locate a trail on a map for planning a route
  • navigate while using the trail
  • identify a location, if emergency services are required
  • promote the trail to residents and visitors
  • build a sense of place and community identity

Earlier this year we invited the community to give us their ideas for naming 3 trails:

  1. Hydro corridor North Service Road to Berwick Drive
  2. Hydro corridor east of Centennial Dr. from Upper Middle down to Heathfield Dr. (Palmer Community)
  3. Downtown area east of Maple Ave. from Ontario Street up to Grahams Lane.

Over 300 suggestions were submitted. A committee of City staff and members of the Burlington Cycling Advisory Committee and the Integrated Transportation Advisory Committee reviewed the suggestions and selected a shortlist of 3 names for each trail.

Residents are now invited to vote for their favorite name for any one of the trails. Voting starts July 2nd and ends on July 24th. Please see the link to the voting survey below. Recommendations for naming the trails will be submitted to Council for final approval.

Have fun, involve your family and please remember that every individual gets only one vote.
