The Town of Penhold has received notice that The Government of Canada will be partnering with the Town  with funding for increased active transportation routes in Penhold.

Through the Federal Government’s Active Transportation Fund (ATF) the Town of Penhold will do an estimated 1.53-million-dollar project of which $ 915,077 or 60% will be Federally supported.

“This funding will focus on connectivity and expansion of trails in town including a footbridge, crosswalks, lighting, boat dock and aeration system within the ponds by the Penhold Regional Multiplex,” says Penhold Mayor Mike Yargeau.

The funding also includes trail enhancements throughout Penhold to bring active transportation connection throughout the community. “We have been working on developing the recreation lands near the Multiplex in phases with the Community Hub Phase currently in progress,” says Yargeau. “This new funding from the AFT will allow us to finish the lands by the Multiplex and continue on with the next phase right away.”
