Arnprior residents call for transit solutions

By Derek Dunn, InsideOttawaValley, December 1, 2019 Access to transportation options has emerged as a significant issue in Arnprior, according to a municipal staff report discussed at a recent council meeting. The latest version of the Strategic Plan will establish priorities and action plans for the next four years. Staff, the public, and council were all consulted to decide which areas deserve attention. All three want to see more businesses and jobs, first and foremost. They also agree on other priorities, including affordable housing options.

However, it is the creation of a transportation plan – public transit, shuttle, ride-sharing, parking – that the public alone is demanding. Some on council often mention the need to repair roads, but few if any have mentioned during regular meetings the importance of travel options.
