Active Forms of Transportation – Public Input Session November 1st

The City of Peterborough has several by-laws that regulate active forms of transportation such as cycling, skateboarding and in-line skating. These by-laws are due for administrative updates, and because the City has received requests from user groups for changes to them, the following by-laws are now under review:

 Chapter 729 of the Municipal Code (requirement for a bike license)

  • By-Law 09-164 – A By-Law to Prohibit Vehicles on Public Lands or Property in the City of Peterborough
  • By-Law 91-71 Traffic By-Law

 Staff have conducted research to learn what is being done in other municipalities. At this stage in the review, staff would like to hear from citizens what their concerns are related to the existing by-laws and what solutions they favour.

A public input session is scheduled for Thursday, November 1 from 5:00-8:00 p.m. at the Simcoe Street Transit Terminal, 190 Simcoe Street.

All information and the survey that will be at the public input session are also available on the City of Peterborough Website at
