FCA-FAC Transportation Master Plan: Workshop & Survey

Dear FCA members:
WORKSHOP: The City of Ottawa’s current Transportation Master Plan (TMP) is the City’s blueprint for planning, developing and operating its walking, cycling, public transit and road networks for the next two decades. It was approved in 2013, based on 2006 census information, 2011 traffic data, background reports and public consultation. It contains targets and strategies regarding walking, cycling, transit and vehicles for 2031 (to access the TMP goto http://ottawa.ca/en/city-hall/planning-and-development/official-plan-and-master-plans/transportation-master-plan ). The City originally intended to update the TMP for 2018, but now does not expect to begin the process to update the TMP until 2021.
But time does not stand still – assumptions change, new data becomes available, and a new TMP is needed. On Saturday April 8, 2017 (8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. @ Tom Brown Arena, 141 Bayview Rd.) the FCA Transportation Committee will hold a half-day workshop on building a new Transportation Master Plan for our city. Please see the attached Agenda or click on it here:

Survey results will be released during the workshop to help us in planning the discussion for the event. All answers are anonymous and may be published on the FCA website following the workshop. Please do not include any personal information in the survey answers.
