We begin with several delegations with respect to the Essex Region Greenway Trail and South Talbot Road. Earlier this year funding was secured to complete the trail link between the Rt Hon Herb Gray Parkway and the existing Chrysler Canada Greenway. The proposed location is adjacent to a drain to the rear of several properties fronting on South Talbot Road to ensure a consistent natural environment but will require the purchase of property to complete. The delegations have communicated their preference for a trail along South Talbot Road in advance.
