Complete Streets move people, not just cars. They are designed and operated to enable safe and comfortable use for all, regardless of age or ability. They recognize that streets have different roles, functions, and characteristics depending on their context.
From the planning stages, to engagement, design, construction, and rehabilitation, we will aim to create livable neighbourhoods that build a better and safer Nanaimo for pedestrians, cyclists, transit users, & motorists.
Through attractive design, enhanced safety, and multi-modal infrastructure, the road can be transformed into a space that:
- Increases safety
- Promotes a more active lifestyle
- Decreases carbon dioxide emissions
- Encourages a sense of community
- Supports local businesses
The scope of the work is to review the current street classification system to reflect the livability and functionality of the street. Complete Streets Guidelines will be created to aid developers and city staff to design and construct livable and accessible streets.
Understanding that not all streets can accommodate all modes in the same way, a survey was created to gather public feedback by evaluating trade-offs and preferences. This survey has since closed; however, please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to provide additional comments and feedback.
Interested in learning more and wanting to chat in person? Everyone is busy and finding time is not always possible. So, we want to come to you! The City will be setting up a number of informal opportunities at community events, parks and rec facilities, transit exchanges, and malls with the intent of reaching a variety of Nanaimo residents. Check the website often for updates on times and exact table locations or bump into us spontaneously and let us know what you think.
