ITE Northern Alberta: Stony Plain Active Transportation Strategy
February 24, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm UTC-8
In January of 2020 Bunt & Associates, in partnership with Mobycon, prepared an Active Transportation Strategy for the Town of Stony Plain, Alberta. The Active Transportation Strategy is intended to establish the vision and direction to facilitate the implementation of active transportation strategies for the community.
Through a review of Canadian and international active transportation infrastructure best practice and feedback from the Community using Thoughtexchange, an online engagement tool, 44 specific prioritized infrastructure projects were identified for consideration. These specific initiatives were also supported through the identification of initiatives to promote and enable active transportation in the Community. The presentation will highlight the key findings from the project, including existing barriers to active transportation within Stony Plain, how the use of Thoughtexchange contributed to the process, and the five catalyst projects that were identified to kick start the implementation of the strategy.
