Greetings cyclists and pedestrians of Oak Bay!

Last Monday evening, Oak Bay Council approved the mandates of 4 citizen advisory committees. The municipality will shortly be advertising for residents to participate in these committees.

One of these advisory committees, the Active Transportation Advisory Committee, has a mandate to make recommendations to Council on infrastructure improvements that will improve walking, cycling, and accessibility for those using mobility aids (e.g. wheelchairs, scooters, etc.) or pushing baby prams.
As background material, please refer to the Oak Bay Active Transportation Strategy prepared for Council in September 2011.

Please consider participating on this committee! It’s desirable for the committee composition to be of persons with varied backgrounds, of both genders, and ideally some broad age representation. I am particularly urging female walkers/cyclists to make a contribution.

More information will be published shortly by the municipality in the Oak Bay News and on the municipal website, so watch for it coming soon. It will include instructions on to apply to be on the committee.
