ABOUT THE PROJECT

The Calgary and Area Pathway and Bikeway Plan was developed in 2000 and needs updating. Many of the proposed pathways and bikeways from the plan were built. Some of the proposed pathways and bikeways are now obsolete because of changes to the roadway or approved developments. Also, new policies have been approved that impact the plan.

The updated plan will provide a proposed city-wide network of pathways and bikeways that will seamlessly connect Calgarians to the places they want to go.


PROVIDE YOUR INPUT

We need your help to identify challenges and difficulties with the current pathway and bikeway network, along with the locations that you travel to using the current network. Your feedback will help us develop an updated network and the criteria used to help us prioritize the implementation of the plan.

The engagement process for this project will consist of an online feedback form and two map-based feedback opportunities to identify your most frequent destinations and barriers to reaching those destinations on the Pathway and Bikeway network. This input will help determine which missing links should be prioritized.



I currently use the pathway / bikeway network for: (please check all that apply)
How often do you use the pathway/bikeway network? (check the one that best describes you)
Is the pathway network and/or bikeway network easily accessible from where you start your trip?
If you are using the pathway and bikeway network to get to a destination, how many minutes are you willing to travel in ideal weather conditions?
If you are using the pathway and bikeway network to get to a destination, how many minutes are you willing to travel in adverse weather conditions (cold/wet)?

NEXT STEPS

The What We Heard report will be available online in the summer of 2017. We will use your feedback and technical analysis to help us identify new pathway and bikeway routes and prioritize their construction. We will be sharing the results of this work in early 2018. In the fall of 2018 we will be taking the final recommended plan to committee and Council for approval.
