Plan is to design recreational trails throughout the city; hope is that plan will be ready by the fall
The City of Iqaluit is getting $50,000 from the federal government to develop a trails plan.
“We want to create spaces where pedestrians can go out for a walk for exercise or go out for a walk to get from point A to point B,” said City of Iqaluit recreation director Stephanie Clark, in an interview.
The funding, announced by the federal government last week, is to develop a plan that designs routes for recreational trails across the city.
