Crothers' Woods Management Plan Released

The long awaited management plan for Crothers' Woods has been released. It is entitled "Crothers' Woods Trail Management Strategy" and it is now available online on the city's website (Note they misspelled the filename of the PDF). The PDF is 17.6 Mb in size so be warned if you have a slow connection. You may be able to order paper copies. If I find out anything on this I'll let you know.

The report outlines options for the city on managing the burgeoning trail system. It recommends new signage and increased enforcement of by-laws; the closure of some trails; and a continuation of enhancement of the main trails to make them sustainable and long-lasting. There is also a natural heritage inventory and a plan on how to manage invasive species.

The city is currently looking for a consultant who can recommend implementation strategies although the trail improvement program has been underway for quite some time.
