The Regional District of Nanaimo (RDN) invites residents of French Creek and neighbouring areas to give feedback on the draft active transportation network options. 

The options for the French Creek Active Transportation project were developed using input collected from residents last summer, according to a media release from the RDN. 

Active transportation includes all human-powered forms of travel, including walking, cycling, in-line skating and skateboarding, as well as electric-powered forms of travel such as e-bikes and mobility scooters.

Residents can provide their feedback on these options through an online survey until March 25 via the project webpage and during a virtual information session on March 10.

The input will help prioritize and refine options for active transportation infrastructure improvements in French Creek. The active transportation final report will include implementation options and will be incorporated as an amendment to the Electoral Area G Official Community Plan to help guide future land-use decisions, according to the RDN.

Residents of French Creek, Parksville and Qualicum Beach travel within and through the French Creek area for services, school and work. French Creek, however, lacks the sufficient sidewalks, trails and wider road shoulders commuters need to actively travel through the community. Once the project is complete, roadside improvements will provide a safer, more accessible active transportation network in the area.
