Join the Conversation on Shaping the Future of Active Transportation in Your Community
October 31, 2023
The Fraser Valley Regional District (FVRD) is excited to announce the launch of a public consultation process that empowers community members in electoral areas to participate in shaping the future of active transportation in their region.
Learn About The Active Transportation Network Plan
The Active Transportation Network Plan (ATNP) is a visionary initiative to establish a comprehensive and interconnected network for human-powered modes of transportation, including walking, biking, rolling, e-scooters, e-bikes, and mobility aid usage. The focus of the ATNP is to develop a network of safe and accessible active transportation opportunities for community members of all ages and abilities throughout electoral areas of the FVRD. Through collaboration with community members, the ATNP will establish a vision for active transportation in the FVRD and identify priority projects and locations for active transportation infrastructure.
Jason Lum, Chair of the FVRD Board, emphasized the importance of community participation in this endeavour, saying, “We are excited to embark on this journey to enhance active transportation in our region. Together with our electoral area communities, we aim to create a plan that truly reflects our residents’ interests and needs.”
Input from community members will serve as the cornerstone of this plan. We encourage everyone to visit haveyoursay.fvrd.ca/atnp to learn more about the project and subscribe to receive regular updates. As the planning process evolves interactive tools will be added to haveyoursay.fvrd.ca/atnp to collect your feedback. You can participate through the following activities:
- Online Survey – Launching November 6.
- Interactive Map – Explore the online interactive map, also available November 6, to pinpoint specific locations where active transportation infrastructure is needed or could be improved.
- Community Meetings – Attend a community meeting in your area to discuss how active transportation can be improved in your community.
