Final Active Transportation Plan

Our team has finished putting the final touches on our very first Active Transportation Plan.  This document has incorporated the suggestions and feedback from thousands of people!  Thanks to everyone who took the time to help shape the plan.

The Active Transportation Plan will guide the District’s investments in active transportation over the next 30 years. The plan establishes a vision, goals and targets to improve active transportation, along with a series of strategies and actions regarding the three overarching themes of the plan: Connections, Convenience, and Culture. These strategies and actions provide holistic guidance regarding improvements to policies, standards, infrastructure and programming to ensure that walking, cycling and transit are accessible, comfortable, and convenient transportation choices for people of all ages and abilities.

Please have a look at our Final Plan and let us know what you think!

The final plan will be brought to Council for their consideration on June 18th. Check back often and follow #movingsaanichfwd on social media for updates.

What have we done so far? 

In 2016 Saanich staff began consulting the community through various means of engagement including online surveys, engagement labs, pop-up booths, Saanich Talks speaker series, Walk Bike rallies, public advisory committee meetings and community roadshows. 

Based on this feedback we created several summary reports and papers that document what we heard and how we incorporated community feedback.  These reports have guided the creation of the Active Transportation Plan and can be viewed by clicking the links below.
