Feeling Congested: Public Consultation

Update No. 32 - April 11, 2014

Feeling Congested
Public Consultation

The City is proposing draft policy amendments to the Official Plan transportation policies for public discussion and input. The draft policies are the outcome of an inter-divisional and agency review process undertaken as part of the “Feeling Congested?” initiative, which is part of the City’s Five Year Official Plan Review.

The draft transportation policy amendments are generally organized under the headings of:
Integration with Land Use;
Streets and "Complete Streets";
Active Transportation;
Auto, Transportation Demand Management (TDM), and Parking; and,
Goods Movement.

The draft amendments do not cover all the areas of transportation policy found in the Official Plan. Notably, updates to the maps and schedules pertaining to street rights-of-way and unbuilt roads and revisions to policies relating to transit planning, bicycling and laneways are not addressed at this time as they are  the subject of on-going reviews.

Public Open Houses to present and discuss the draft policy changes will be held at the following locations and dates:
