Around Town: Complete Streets Pilot Project Information Session
The City of Courtenay is hosting a Public Information Session to collect input for the conceptual design of the Complete Streets Pilot Project on Thursday, May 5 from 6 to 8 pm in the Native Sons Hall Upper Level. According to the Complete Streets for Canada website “a Complete Street is designed for all ages, abilities, and modes of travel. On Complete Streets, safe and comfortable access for pedestrians, bicycles, transit users and the mobility-impaired is an integral planning feature.”
The federal government awarded $3.253 million to the City of Courtenay to construct a Complete Streets Pilot Project. The pilot project location is 5th Street between Fitzgerald and Menzies Avenue which is important as it will attract people downtown and support economic development. This project will redesign and rebuild the street. It includes replacing underground utility mains, enhancing walking and cycling facilities, and improving storm water facilities and streetscapes with street trees and vegetation. The Public Information Session will have display boards with information on the Complete Streets approach, interactive displays, and a survey to gather suggestions for the project.
For further information, please contact City of Courtenay Engineering Services at 250.334.4441, firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the Complete Streets project page.
