WHEREAS opting out of the Clearing the Path (CTP) Program can be done by either SARM or a participating municipality after providing 1 year notice to either party; and
WHEREAS significant dollars have been invested by the senior levels of government to ensure CTP primary weight trade corridors are developed and maintained to provide predictable and uniform access without having to obtain permits and pay fees to individual municipalities; and
WHEREAS there is no formal requirement that municipalities with adjoining corridors receive communication regarding a Clearing the Path designation change within their corridor.
BE IT RESOLVED that the mechanism for opting out of the Clearing the Path Program be reviewed and that SARM take a lead role in communication with all parties along the affected corridor; and
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that municipalities that request to opt out of the Clearing the Path Program be required to provide their rationale as part of their request.
