Active Transportation Plan

|

 The Active Transportation Master Plan Study was conducted in accordance with the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA) process (October 2000, as amended in 2007 and 2011) which is an approved process under the Ontario Environmental Assessment Act. A key outcome of the study is a list of active transportation projects that the City can incorporate in its Capital Program.

The Active Transportation Master Plan process incorporated a comprehensive public consultation program involving the public at large, municipal staff, technical agencies and other interested stakeholders. The Project Team was comprised of representatives from City Council, Public Works, Planning and Development, Health Unit, OPP, CFB Trenton, Conservation Authority’s, and the local Chamber of Commerce. Staff are extremely appreciative of the insight and input provided by the Stakeholder Group.

MMM Group (WSP) has been working on the Active Transportation Master Plan (ATP) for the past year. The plan was developed around the following objectives:

  • Support a continuous and connected system of active transportation and recreation routes that connect to major communities, community destinations and surrounding areas;
  • Provide opportunities for a range of active transportation and recreation uses including on and off-road facilities for those who walk, roll and bike and facilities that accommodate varying ages and abilities;
  • Provide active transportation users well maintained active transportation and recreation infrastructure including year-round opportunities for active transportation in select locations;
  • Encourage the use of active modes of transportation not only for recreational purpose but also to support public health through travel to school, work and other frequently used destinations;
  • Integrate active transportation and active infrastructure into the day-to-day decision making when planning, designing and constructing community services and infrastructure;
  • Adopt policies and plans that strongly support and provide priority for active transportation infrastructure, programs and initiatives City-wide; and
  • Identify a network of committed and involved partners including community members, stakeholders, member of staff and Council representing all communities and socio-economic groups.

Since the development of the 2014 Transportation Master Plan (TMP), the City has taken great strides to make Quinte West more enjoyable, fun and accessible to walk, cycle and roll within the City and to surrounding areas.

Even with this progress, more can be done to establish Quinte West as a destination within Ontario as a cycling and walking friendly community. This document will help make the City’s vision a reality by providing City staff, Council, and Active Transportation Committee Members with the tools, strategies, policies and recommendations to help promote the City as a dynamic community and tourist destination for people of all ages to live, work, play and be active.
