Penhold Town Council requested administration to move funds from the town’s reserves for the purpose of developing trails throughout town.

The funds committed from the Federal Government were in the amount of $915,077 and the town’s commitment of $610,000 will permit new development that will exceed $1.5 million dollars. This project is slated to move forward in 2023.

The Active Transportation Project consisting of connectivity and expansion of trails, including footbridge, lighting, boat dock, and aeration for the ponds was given the green light to proceed in 2023. The Town will be developing a number of new trails with enhancements to the current trails in town. The recreational area at the Regional Multiplex will see additional amenities which will complete the development of the area.
