The North Saanich Active Transportation Plan was approved on Monday May 3.

To find out more about the on-going implementation of the Active Transportation Plan, visit northsaanich.ca/active-transportation. View the Plan under Documents.

This high-level plan, developed through two rounds of public engagement, provides guidance to staff for advancing active transportation initiatives.

Major improvement projects identified in the plan will require further technical study, detailed design and public engagement with all users including pedestrians, cyclists, motorists and equestrians.

Next steps:

In May 2021, we will be launching a design process for a crosswalk at Littlewood and Mills Road with a goal of installing it later this summer.

The Parks Master Plan is scheduled to be updated starting in 2022. It will provide guidance to staff on parks, trails, beach access and more.

About The Plan

What is active transportation? Active transportation is any way of travelling using your own power to get from one place to another. This includes walking, wheel chairing, cycling, or rolling by other means.


What is the Active Transportation Plan? The Active Transportation Plan identifies how to improve roads and trails to make it easier and safer for people to walk and cycle in North Saanich. It is a high-level plan that provides guidance to staff for advancing active transportation initiatives. Major improvement projects identified in the plan will require further technical study, detailed design and public engagement.


Why are we creating the plan? To make it easy and safe to travel by active transportation:

  • improves community health and well-being
  • can reduce congestion and transportation-related emissions
  • is more affordable for more people and that money can be spent in other ways in the community

PUBLIC ENGAGEMENT

The first phase of engagement was held during July and August 2020. 283 completed the survey based on the four broad themes of transportation equity, health and transportation, traffic and road safety, and places and infrastructure.


The second phase of engagement was held during January and February 2021. A draft Active Transportation Plan was presented for feedback. Approximately 25 people attended the virtual Q&A session. 383 people completed the draft Active Transportation Plan survey that allowed people to select preferred options and identify priorities.


In all, 136 government partners, including First Nations, and community stakeholders and organizations, including resident and business associations and social service agencies, were invited to participate through both phases of engagement.”
