Master Plan Update: Multi-Modal Active Transportation
The City has initiated an update to the Multi-Modal Active Transportation Master Plan (MMATMP) to assess future transportation needs to support growth to the 2041 horizon year based on the Provincial Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe.
Status: The Notice of Study Commencement was published in August and September of 2017. A Public Information Centre (PIC) will be scheduled for 2018.
Consultant: The City has retained the consulting firm WSP to complete this study.
Study Level: Municipal Class EA – Master Planning Process, Approach #2
Purpose: The Multi-Modal Active Transportation Master Plan will:
- Review existing conditions;
- Identify transportation improvements, including road widenings and active transportation/transit improvements, to accommodate growth;
- Identify, assess alternatives based on modal split and identify a preferred alternative solution; and
- Develop a long-range implementation plan to 2041.
The study area encompasses the entire City, including the annexation lands.
Scope: The MMATMP Update is being conducted in accordance with Approach #2 of the Master Plan process as prescribed in the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) document for municipal road projects. The Master Plan Update will address Phases 1 and 2 of the five-phase Municipal Class EA Process. In accordance with Approach #2, the City will then undertake additional public consultation and detailed study of the Schedule ‘B’ Class EA projects that are anticipated to be constructed within the next 10 years.
Key Considerations: Developing plans to increase active transportation and transit use, improve options to keep Barrie moving during planned growth, and developing comprehensive, environmentally sound solutions.
