The Brantford, Ontario Human Powered Transportation Association (HPTA) is appealing for funds to renovate the Wind Del Park velodrome at Windham Centre. HPTA recently obtained the lease on the facility, allowing it to apply for a grant from Ontario's Trillium Foundation, which funds community projects to improve quality of life. A collaborative was formed with the HPTA, Ontario Cycling Association and Wind Del to operate and maintain the track and park areas, and the first step will be the much needed resurfacing of the track.
The OCA is seeking support in two ways. A tax-deductible donation can be made by cheque or money order - for details see www.ontariocycling.org. Alternatively, the organisation is seeking partners and sponsors to support the velodrome, and potential sponsors should contact Joe Mitrovic at firstname.lastname@example.org.
