Public asked for input into City’s Pedestrian and Cycling Strategy
Survey now available online
Winnipeg, MB – The City of Winnipeg is continuing the development of Pedestrian and Cycling Strategies to identify priorities for infrastructure and to promote walking and cycling as a safe, viable and attractive transportation choice.
The Public Works Department has engaged Urban Systems Ltd. to undertake the research and development of these strategies for the City. The team has completed the first phase of these strategies, which includes preparing demographic and neighborhood profiles, travel patterns, creating an inventory of all existing pedestrian and cycling facilities, and identifying best practices and lessons learned from the development of strategies in similar cities.
The next step is to engage the public through a public consultation program. The purpose of the public consultation program is to ensure the strategies meet the public’s expectations for their short- and long-term walking and cycling needs, and to increase public understanding of active transportation choices. The plan has been tailored to engage a broad range of stakeholders and the City is seeking input from all Winnipeggers. A telephone survey will also be used to reach out to Winnipeggers to see what people think about walking and cycling in Winnipeg throughout the city.
The public will be able to participate in this project in the following ways:
· Visit our website www.walkbike.winnipeg.ca
· Participate in our online survey on the website
· Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
· Attend a public open house
· Stay updated about this project by signing up for the SpeakUpWinnipeg email newsletter
Feedback from the public consultation program will assist in determining how the City will move forward in developing and promoting walking and cycling infrastructure.
