Trails Master Plan 2017

Edson Town Council has adopted the Trails Master Plan and administration is now formulating a plan for implementation. The plan assesses current pedestrian infrastructure (with a primary emphasis placed on the Trails system) and establishes measures by which it can be improved in the short and long terms.
