Active Transportation Master Plan Update public information centre on June 22, 2016

It is time for Oakville to update its ATMP to assess what has been done, what still needs to be done, and priorities for the future. Oakville’s first ATMP was developed in 2009 and has been the guiding document used to improve walking and cycling for various user groups of all ages and abilities. Since then, the town has adopted new supportive policies and implemented over 185 km of bike lanes, multi-use trails, signed bike routes and sidewalks.

Building on the success of the town’s approved Transportation Master Plan, Switching Gears, staff will conduct an interactive public engagement process to guide the ATMP update.

Drop in, get informed and share your thoughts

Join us at the first public information centre. Drop-in/registration begins at 6:30 p.m. At 7 p.m. the team will start with a brief presentation followed by interactive and engaging activities.

The activities are meant to gather your thoughts on how to help shape the future vision for walking and cycling and to provide input on existing and future infrastructure and outreach programs.

Background

The ATMP update is being completed consistent with master plan approach #1 outlined in the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment Study process. A key component of this study is two public consultation opportunities.

The town is seeking input from the public to inform the development of the plan and identify a continuous and connected system of on and off-road AT facilities, policy improvements and opportunities to improve walking and biking within the town through education, encouragement and enforcement.

Online feedback and more details

Visit the Active Transportation Master Plan page to provide input through:

  • Our online questionnaire where you can answer questions about your current active transportation habits and preferences
  • An online mapping tool where you can identify walking and cycling opportunities, barriers and destinations based on the existing routes identified in the 2009 ATMP
