Support the Active Transportation Strategy & Investment UBCM Resolution

Some good news! Resolution B15: Active Transportation Strategy passed at the Union of BC Municipalities (UBCM) conference. Thanks to all the mayors and councillors who voted for it, the District of North Vancouver for moving this resolution forward; BCAHL and Heart and Stroke for building municipal support; and to Courtenay, the Sunshine Coast Regional District and Vernon for similar resolutions.

2018 UBCM Resolutions Book, page 108:  

Whereas to respond to the complex and evolving needs of British Columbians and diversify the economy, local government across BC have developed forward-thinking: transportation plans, the development of community centres, age-friendly community plans, and Integrated Community Sustainability Plans. And whereas a provincial active transportation strategy - fully supported by dedicated staff and increased investments in provincial funding for municipal/regional active transportation projects - would accelerate implementation of existing community plans, and enhance the liveability and competitiveness of BC communities:

Therefore be it resolved that UBCM urge the Province of British Columbia to establish a provincial active transportation strategy, with dedicated staff and increased investments in local active transportation.

Please write your mayor and council thanking them for support this resolution, a provincial active transportation strategy and increased investment in cycling and walking.
