The Pedestrian and Bicycle Master Plan outlines a strategic approach to achieve more walking and cycling throughout our City, and facilitate a community where walking and cycling infrastructure are key components.
“Aspiring to be a community that is compact and walkable is our priority, where the natural environment is protected and where walking paths and cycling routes connect destinations throughout the City,” said Moudud Hasan, Transportation and Mobility Manager. “This plan identifies infrastructure, bylaw and policy measures to promote increased walking and cycling in Kelowna in a safe manner.”
Residents are invited to review the proposed active transportation network and steps for implementation and give their feedback. City staff will be on hand to answer questions regarding the Plan and provide an opportunity for input at the following public information opportunities:
