Previous Consultation


A transportation network includes all the ways that people, goods, and services move.  Growing communities with greater diversity demand more transportation choice and people of all ages and abilities need to be able to reach important destinations, by whichever mode they choose.  How people travel around their community, where they travel to and how long it takes, all contribute to how communities plan transportation infrastructure like roads, bike lanes, and sidewalks.

Based on public input, best practices, and technical assessment, Connecting Courtenay will identify existing issues, model future impacts, and identify medium and long-term improvement opportunities.
