 About the Plan

 

The Municipality is working with IBI Group to complete a Transportation Master Plan. The Plan will establish our vision for transportation in the Municipality over the next 25 years. It will include an assessment of our current transportation system, and forecast future travel demands as our community grows and technology changes. The plan will include action items and identify policies that can be developed to address our urban, rural, and active transportation needs. The Master Planning process evaluates options based on many factors, including:

  • Land-use Planning
  • Natural Environment
  • Social Environment
  • Cultural Environment
  • Economic Environment
  • Property Needs
  • Indigenous Peoples

The plan will be a living document, and will continue to be reviewed and updated as our community and future needs change.
