Please check back here for future updates on the Sapperton/Massey-Victory Heights Transportation Plan as staff prepare a report to Council this spring.
Progress to date
The 2016 Transportation Team Work Plan required staff to develop the Sapperton Transportation Plan with a focus around safety and livability. The study area encompassed the Sapperton-McBride and Massey-Victory Heights neighbourhoods, with a three step approach:
- The Royal Columbian Hospital Transportation Impact Assessment (TIA)
- Other Sapperton developments servicing plan
- Neighbourhood transportation safety and livability plan
In October 2016, the project kicked off with the ‘listen and learn’ workshop held at the Sapperton Pensioners Hall with over 60 people in attendance. Valuable feedback was gathered, and has been collated in a Workshop #1 Summary Report. This information forms the basis for the future improvements that are identified within the study area.
On Saturday, April 8, 2017, Workshop #2 with the community was held to verify evaluation criteria, present findings from the analysis/ modelling, and review preliminary options being proposed by the consultants. This was coupled with an online survey which integrated feedback received at Workshop #2.
Two public open house events were held in June and September for residents to review and provide feedback on the recommended design based on feedback from the previous events.
Staff are working on the final transportation plan and anticipate presenting recommendations for Council consideration in the spring 2018.
