Recent TCAT activities and news items:
1. Ontario Complete Streets Gap Analysis Underway
Ryan Whitney, the Complete Streets Researcher and Program Manager here at TCAT, has been busy establishing the methods for the Complete Streets Gap Analysis due to be completed in mid-January 2012. The Gap Analysis will provide a comprehensive overview of Complete Streets policy language, or similar policy language, in Ontario as well as barriers to implementing these policies. The research will also include a Case Studies section that will profile several exceptional communities across the province working towards Complete Streets. Ryan loves to talk about his research, so please feel free to get in contact with him at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or if you would like to recommend a community for inclusion in the study.
