Strathcona Bike Route Info Session


Last night on a beer run, I saw a notice for a Strathcona Bike Route Info Session.

About a year ago, the city circulated a traffic survey in the community which included questions regarding alternative transportation. I can only guess that enough of us filled out the survey and emphasized that more attention should be paid to bike routes. If this is the case, then I'd like to thank everyone who took the time to fill out that survey. More proof that if you take the time to make your voice heard, someone may listen.

I also think this may be of interest to many people outside of the community, since many people head west out of the city via Strathcona/Coach Hill and this could help with route planning.

Here's the details:

November 23 Strathcona Bike Route Information Session
5 - 8 p.m., Strathcona Community Centre, 277 Strathcona Dr. S.W.
As part of The City's commitment to encouraging alternative forms of transportation, we are proposing improvements to bicycle routes in the Strathcona community. A public information session will be held to share the concept designs with interested members of the public and to gain feedback.
Contact: Mat MacDonald, 403-268-2196 or email: [email protected]

Looking forward to see what they are proposing. Personally, even if the plan is just to add a few more "Bike Route" signs, then I'll still be happy.
