Lanark County Council wants to get in gear with an application for funding under the Ontario Municipal Commuter Cycling Program (OMCCP). The OMCCP is a 42.5 million dollar province-wide initiative for 2017, with additional funds pledged over the next three years, and Lanark wants its share. Three projects have been identified in the county: adding a gravel and stone dust base to the Ottawa Valley Recreation Trail (OVRT) between Montague and Mississippi Mills for $1.3 million; adding decking and railings to the former railway bridge in Pakenham on the OVRT for $400,000; and paving 17.3-km of shoulders on both sides of County Road 43 between Perth and Smiths Falls for $1.06 million. County Council passed a motion Wednesday (August 9th) asking the Provincial Government for accelerate funding on the potential projects. Additional applications under the OMCCP may be forthcoming from both Carleton Place and Mississippi Mills.
