Greenbelt Route signs up in Cobourg

PETE FISHER / Northumberland Today
Darryl Pogue of the Town of Cobourg's Public Works Department installs a Greenbelt Route sign at King Street West and Burnham Street last week in Cobourg. The signs will direct cyclists and tourists safely through the route, and to amenities and attractions in the area. Twelve signs have been installed at various locations in Cobourg and each sign measures 18 inches by 12 inches (450 by 300 mm). The Waterfront Generation Trust supplied the signs for the Greenbelt, so there was no expense to the Town. The Greenbelt is 1.8 million acres of protected land and goes 325 kilometres from Rice Lake to the Niagara River. It also wraps around the Greater Golden Horseshoe. It's the world's largest permanently protected greenbelt. It serves to protect environmentally sensitive areas and farmlands from urban development.
