    We Want to Hear from You!

    Based on the public/stakeholder engagement and the technical analysis completed over the last three months, the consulting team has prepared a draft report that is now ready for your review. The report includes a series of options on four topic areas:

    1. Crosswalk at Haro Park Terrace
    2. On-street Parking
    3. School Parking Lot Loop & Bus Loading Area
    4. Traffic Calming

    The purpose of this survey is to get your feedback on the options in each topic area. The results of this survey will be used by the consulting team to finalize their recommendations in the report before it goes to North Saanich Council. For detailed information about each option—including the list of the advantages and disadvantages of each— please see the draft report found in the Documents section.

    The survey should take approximately 10-15 minutes to complete. If you are completing this survey as a parent/guardian of a child(ren) who attends KELSET Elementary School, please complete one survey per family.
