‘Connecting Courtenay’ survey online until end of month

Completing five-minute survey will help City with future infrastructure priorities

Courtenay has more than doubled in size over the past 25 years, and as cities grow and change, so do their transportation needs.

The City of Courtenay is developing Connecting Courtenay, a Transportation Master Plan that will provide direction on transportation infrastructure for the next 20 years. The City is seeking public input about issues and challenges and “big ideas” to be considered as part of the long-term transportation network.

Approximately 90 people attended an open house at the Florence Filberg Centre on March 7. For those that missed the open house, an online survey is available on the City website until March 28 at www.courtenay.ca/connectingcourtenay

A transportation network includes all the ways that people, goods, and services move. Growing communities with greater diversity demand more transportation choice as people of all ages and abilities need to be able to reach important destinations, by whichever mode they choose. How people travel around their community, where they travel to and how long it takes, all contribute to how communities plan transportation infrastructure like roads, bike lanes, and sidewalks.

Based on public input, best practices, and technical assessment, Connecting Courtenay will identify existing issues, model future impacts, identify long-term improvements and set priorities for five and 10 years investments. The draft plan will be presented to City Council in summer 2018.
