A reader brought to our attention this notice from the municipality’s website:
Mississippi Mills is making it easier for ATVs to access trails by relaxing restrictions. On June 7th, Committee of the Whole approved a motion that would permit ATVs to travel on municipal roadways for the purpose of accessing areas of approved use on a one-year trial basis. Current restrictions will be maintained in the downtown core but eased elsewhere. This means residents no longer need to trailer to an area of permitted use – they can drive there from their home on the following roadways:
- All roads lying within the boundary of the Almonte Ward except for:
- Little Bridge Street (from Bridge Street to Mill Street)
- Mill Street (from Bridge Street to Main Street)
- Mill Street (from Bridge Street to the dead end, south of Bridge)
- Brae Street (from Mill Street to Farm Street)
- High Street (from Brae Street to Bridge Street)
- All roads lying within the boundary of the Village of Pakenham
- Golden Line Road (from McArton Rd. to March Rd.)
- Head Pond Road South (from Ryan Duncan Side Rd. to the dead end)
- Lunney Road (from Shaw Rd to the dead end)
- Rock Coady Trail (from Panmure Rd. to the dead end)
- Timmins Road (from Kinburn Side Rd. to the dead end)
- Walter Bradley Road (County Road 29 to the dead end)
Approved-use areas include the OVRT, county roads and country roads.
Council will vote on this motion at the June 21st Council Meeting.
