    About the Plan

    The community has expressed a desire for increased active transportation infrastructure to:

    ·  support walking, cycling and transit use

    ·  improve road safety for pedestrians and cyclists

    ·  achieve our Climate Leadership Plan goals (transportation is the primary contributor of greenhouse gas emissions in our community)

    Active transportation has many advantages—primarily improved health, environmental and social benefits.

    The Active Transportation Plan will provide a course of action that reflects the community’s priorities and available resources. It will outline strategies, recommend infrastructure, policies and education to help enable and encourage active transportation as preferred modes of transportation.
