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

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.
