[ARCHIVED] Connect Salmon Arm - Small City, Great Connections


Small City. Great Connections.

Provide your Feedback to help Shape the Future of Walking, Rolling and Cycling in Salmon Arm

Salmon Arm, B.C. – The City is encouraging residents to share their input to help shape “Connect Salmon Arm,” the City’s newly launched active transportation planning process.

Funded in part through the province’s Active Transportation Grant Program, Connect Salmon Arm aims to provide the City with safe, accessible, age-friendly, inclusive facilities for all ages and abilities year-round. The network and priority projects, along with supporting policies and programs, will be included in a 5-, 10- and 20-year implementation plan.

“Connect Salmon Arm will ensure that we are set up for the well-being of generations to come. Enhancing our network will provide safer pathways for pedestrians and cyclists, while increasing connections to key destinations around the City,” shared Mayor Alan Harrison.

“A more connected Salmon Arm will improve vitality in our community by encouraging residents to consider more active modes of transportation and reduce environmental impacts like greenhouse gas emissions. Your feedback plays a critical role in developing a Plan that works for our community.”

Active transportation commonly refers to people walking (including mobility aids such as wheelchairs) and cycling. It also includes rolling or using other human-powered winter or water-based modes like cross country skiing and kayaking. Other new and emerging transportation trends like e-bikes and e-scooters can also fit in this category and will be considered for this plan.

To gather perspectives on local active transportation issues and opportunities, there will be several opportunities for residents to provide feedback. Launching today is a survey that will help inform the existing conditions, travel trends and community priorities regarding infrastructure, safety, policies and programs.
