paris-cycling-2007-24-225x300At the very successful Active Transportation Forum held in Oak Bay Nov. 7th, Councilor Nils Jensen suggested that Oak Bay Council incorporate a new filter through which to plan and prioritize road/infrastructure projects.

Councilor Jensen is following through on this initiative by tabling a motion to Oak Bay Council tomorrow (Monday) night. The motion would resolve that Oak Bay, when planning transportation upgrades, give preference to modes of transportation in the following order: Pedestrian, Cycling, Public Transit, Motor Vehicles. Also, that staff would prepare options to achieve this in budget year 2010.
