City to hold open house sessions on walking, cycling resources

  • Print

City hall is looking for public input on its proposed walking and cycling strategies.

The draft strategies will be unveiled at a series of open houses later this month, where the community is asked to comment on how city hall plans to shape the community’s resources for walking and cycling.

The first open house is Saturday, April 12, 11 a.m.-4 p.m., at the Manitoba Theatre for Young People, at The Forks.

Two additional open houses will be held Tuesday, April 15, 3-9 p.m., at the Sinclair Park Community Centre, 490 Sinclair St., and at the Manitoba Hydro Place Atrium, 360 Portage Ave.

The proposed strategies were developed over the past few months. The drafts were refined through a city-wide telephone survey of over 2,200 residents, and with the help of a targeted stakeholder workshop.

City hall says cycling has increased by 40 per cent across Winnipeg, and it is the fastest-growing transportation choice in the city.

Winnipeg’s cycling network has more than doubled between 2006 and 2012, from 175 kilometres to 392 kilometres. Since 2009, $80 million has been invested in pedestrian and cycling facilities in the community.
