Active transportation needs new views for new plan

The City of Quesnel Active Transportation Plan public consultation is now open.

The City of Quesnel is updating the Active Transportation Plan and needs community help to provide valuable input through a survey and interactive map where they can drop pins and leave comments.

An Active Transportation Plan outlines strategies and initiatives to promote and encourage active modes of transportation such as walking, cycling, and public transit. The goal of an active transportation plan is to reduce dependence on single-occupancy vehicles, improve public health, increase mobility options, and reduce traffic congestion and greenhouse gas emissions. The City last updated its Active Transportation Plan in 2016.

The community’s feedback will help ensure that the new Active Transportation Plan reflects the needs and priorities of the community, and that everyone has a say in shaping the future of active transportation in Quesnel.
