Town of Peace River seeking feedback on Active Transportation Plan
The Town of Peace River is developing an Active Transportation Plan (ATP) that identifies the existing and future active transportation network, with a focus on the west side of the river, where links between and within neighbourhoods are incomplete.
The goal is to enhance active transportation opportunities with improved access to and through commercial areas and community destinations. This project will provide the Town with a plan for how to prioritize, build out and improve the active transportation network over time.
Community members will benefit as the Town works to connect to the newly completed active modes bridge that opened in 2021 as part of the twinning of the bridges crossing the Peace River. This new bridge represents a major improvement in level of service for pedestrians, cyclists, and other active transportation modes crossing the Peace River.
What is Active Transportation?
Active Transportation includes any form of human-powered or power-assisted transportation, and it is often synonymous with cycling and walking, but it also includes skateboarding, in-line skating, skiing and skating.
Advancements in technology have introduced new forms of transportation, including pedal assist or fully electric bicycles, electric scooters and skateboards, and other mobility assistance devices, known as micro-mobility. These micro-mobility devices expand the number of people who can make use of active transportation methods.
The survey is open until February 15.
This ATP project will evolve through a 3 phase process.
Stakeholder and public engagement is planned at key intervals of the technical work program.
This project is funded in part by the Government of Canada.
