This week on Terra Informa, we discuss multi-use trails with Paths for People, a citizen’s advocacy group here in Edmonton. In June 2017, Paths for People released some new multi-use trail policy recommendations.
Paths for People
Have you wondered about how walking and biking fits into the urban Edmonton transportation conversation? This week, we sat down with Conrad Nobert, the Executive Director of Paths for People. Conrad co-founded Paths for People in 2015 after Isaak Kornelson, a University of Alberta student and athlete, was struck by a car and killed in 2012 on Whyte Avenue. Isaak’s tragic passing encouraged Conrad to bring his community together and talk about safe cycling in Edmonton. In June, Paths for People released a new set of policy recommendations for the City of Edmonton, reimagining the what safe transportation in Edmonton can look like. We asked him about Paths for People’s mission, some of their recommendations, and ongoing work by the City of Edmonton to change how its citizens move around.
