Master Transportation Plan
The City of Parksville is updating the 2002 Transportation Master Plan which will identify strategies to improve the ability of Parksville's residents to meet personal transportation needs, while aiming to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, improve road safety, develop accessible infrastructure and improve community well-being.
Included in the Transportation Master Plan are the Transportation Plan Study and the Downtown Core Area Parking Study. Public involvement is a key component of Parksville's transportation decision-making process. Throughout this process, it is the goal of the City's Engineering and Operations Department to provide an open planning process with opportunities for public participation and input.
The transportation plan study will address the future needs of all modes of transportation (i.e. vehicles, commercial traffic, regional transit, cycling and walking) by adopting innovative, sustainable approaches for existing road networks, future network linkages and proposed development. Specifically, the study will make recommendations on major road network upgrade plans, intersection upgrades, regional transit services, walkways and cycling improvements, alternate vehicle standards, traffic calming measures and commercial vehicle routes.
