Richmond looking into active transportation network

By Gordon Lambie

The Town of Richmond launched a strategic planning study for the development of an “active transportation” network on Monday. The study is meant to help enable the community to identify local needs for pedestrian and cycling paths and add them to its five-year work plan in the hopes of significantly increasing the number of citizens who travel on foot and by bike. The project will also include the creation of tools to promote active transportation among Richmond residents. The first step of this strategic planning process is an online survey and citizen consultation. For the moment the survey, which can be found at, is only available in French but Town Manager Rémi-Mario Mayette said that an English version will be released eventually. See full story in the Tuesday, Nov. 19 edition of The Record.
