North Cowichan looking for public input on transportation

Online survey to be held until April 22

Anyone looking for a say as North Cowichan updates its Master Transportation Plan can participate in a public survey the municipality is conducting until April 22.

The updated master plan will provide long-term direction and guide all decisions related to North Cowichan’s transportation network over the next 30 years.

An updated plan is expected to improve transportation options across the municipality’s communities and be representative of people of all ages and abilities.

During the three phases of the project, taking place between now and the end of the year, residents will have multiple opportunities to weigh in and provide feedback on current and existing conditions of North Cowichan’s transportation network, express their values and priorities related to transportation, and eventually be able to review and comment on the draft plan.

“If you walk, drive, cycle, or roll, we want to hear from you!” said Mayor Al Siebring.

“You might not think about it every day, but how you move from your home to your work to your activities and errands, are all impacted by the municipality’s transportation network. Our goal with this update is to use your feedback to build a plan that reflects your priorities and vision for moving around North Cowichan in the future.”

As well as the survey, an additional Household Travel Survey to develop a transportation model that reflects resident travel patterns is taking place during this same time, and the municipality will randomly choose households to participate via mail or telephone.

Full project details and the public survey are available at www.northcowichan.ca/MTP.
