Active Transportation Plan
Many residents throughout Inverness County spend time on the trails for recreation, and now the Municipality is looking for ways to make it easier for people to walk and cycle as part of their daily routines. The Plan will provide residents and visitors with improved options for safe and enjoyable non-motorized transportation and create new physical connections within each community centre in the County. A series of open house events will be held the week of November 27 – November 30.
The Municipality of the County of Inverness is looking for energetic and dynamic professionals to join our team. Positivity, people skills, and big picture thinking are attributes that are of high priority.
