RELEASE — The City has published the draft Active Transportation 5-Year Implementation Plan (ATIP) for public review. Residents are invited to read the document and offer any feedback they have by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or through the Get Involved Kingston website by July 19.
The ATIP transforms Kingston’s Active Transportation Master Plan into action. This five-year plan identifies and prioritizes investments in cycling and pedestrian infrastructure, programming, and operations to foster a culture of active transportation in Kingston. The plan outlines a series of projects and initiatives including the development of an integrated city-wide active transportation network, the creation of neighbourhood-level connections, and programming, policy, and operational changes that are aligned to Council’s strategic priority to improve walkability, roads and transportation in Kingston and to demonstrate leadership on climate action.
“Council made it clear through its strategic priorities that it should be easier for residents to get around the city through active modes of transportation,” explains Ian Semple, director, transportation services with the City of Kingston. “The final version of this plan will serve as the foundation for the City’s work toward achieving this goal.”
The City will review all feedback received on the draft ATIP and consider revisions based on that input before finalizing the plan later this year. Members of the public can access the draft ATIP on the City’s website.
