[July 2015] Project Update

What We Heard!

From February to June, 2015, we sought public input on the preliminary long-term recommendations for the Growth Plan’s core initiatives of Corridor Growth, Transit and Core Bridges.  The recommendations include:

  • a new transit system with Bus Rapid Transit (BRT);
  • redevelopment along major corridors like 22nd Street, Idylwyld Drive, 8th Street, College Drive and Preston Avenue; and,
  • a new core area river crossing at 33rd Street, combined with bus lanes on the University Bridge.

Thanks for all of your great input!  Here is a summary of what we heard.

What Has Happened!

Here is the Growth Plan Summary Report #2 that documents our work-to-date.  This summary provides a detailed assessment of the preliminary long-term recommendations noted above.

What Happens Next?

All input gathered during the latest round of public engagement is being used alongside technical evaluations to finalize the long-term recommendations and set implementation priorities for the Growth Plan’s core initiatives.

We’ll be back in the fall to confirm the final Growth Plan with the public.
