Transportation Master Plan 2014

The City of Courtenay and consultants Morrison Hershfield Ltd. have developed a new Transportation and Land Use Master Plan to guide infrastructure and services in the City over the next 20 years and beyond.

The plan looks at the bigger picture of how to accommodate the changing needs of pedestrians, cyclists and vehicles within Courtenay, while addressing land use and community development as the city grows. Population and employment trends, and their impact on travel demand, will be incorporated into the results. The plan’s recommendations will help the City prioritize improvements to transportation infrastructure and provide clear direction to the development community.

The final report was adopted by Courtenay City Council on August 5, 2014.

Public consultation

Open houses were held on October 16, 2012 and May 23, 2013. An initial online survey in the fall of 2012 asked residents about their vision for the Transportation and Land Use Master Plan, and received over 500 responses. A follow-up survey was completed in June 2013. Consultation has also included all four local governments, First Nations, the Downtown Courtenay Business Improvement Association, the School District, the Ministry of Transportation, airport, emergency services and transit.
