The Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan (BPMP) is a critical tool for guiding city staff and the development community in building a balanced transportation system that is pedestrian and bicycle friendly and encourages residents to use these modes of transportation. The ultimate goal is a shift from driving single occupancy vehicles to more walking and bicycling as a normal part of daily life. The BPMP establishes the long term vision for improving active transportation and provides policies and actions to assist the City in making progress.
The BPMP is updated approximately every 5 to 8 years. The City embarked on an update to the BPMP in the summer of 2023. Work on this new plan, renamed the Active Transportation Plan, will commence on September 21, 2023 with a vision and goal-setting exercise at a regularly scheduled Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Board meeting.
