City of North Vancouver - Erika/Heather

  • Walk CNV

City's walking plan WALK CNV was adopted at Council Sept 9. It is pedestrian focused but according to Tony: "Among many many goodies is a commitment to develop a strategy for MUPs to manage safety for pedestrians as volumes increase." We need to push for separated cycling facilities as MUPs largely inappropriate for commuting and focuses too much on cycling just for recreation. See next item for potential inroad.

  • Council's 2018-2022 strategic plan

Envisions providing active and sustainable and ways for people to move around as part of the broader "healthiest small city in the world" vision. https://www.cnv.org/your-government/mayor-and-council/council-strategic-plan

  • Esplanade Protected Bike Lanes.

A new protected bike lane will be ready shortly along the Prominade development. This design has room for sidewalk, trees, bike lane, trees then car lane. there will be a textured surface separating the sidewalk and bike lane (similar to Carrall St approaching Expo Blvd in Vancouver) with the street trees between the bike lane and the curb. It will set the precedent for any new lanes.

    • A design concept for Esplanade was presented to ITC Oct 2 - HUB has asked for a copy to review.
    • Final concept will be presented to council in October - Council will approve or not. If approved the concepts will go to public consultation.
  • New Mosquito Creek Bridge there will be wide sidewalks for peds and cyclists and a pathway underneath to connect to the trail, though with the off Marine bike route, the Marine Drive bike lanes are not likely to stay. ** Marine Dr Mosquito Creek Bridge
  • Mackay MUP Parking has been removed in some segments. A wide MUP has been constructed on top of the dyke being built for flood mitigation and there will also be bike lanes on both sides with parked car buffers in places. Should be done soon. No sign yet of bike lanes and the MUP itself had not yet been finished as of this past week. Road is in poor condition next to the unpaved part of the MUP. Connection to other side of Marine remains to be seen.
  • New building at 3rd and Chesterfield now has an asphalt off-street bike path next to it but as of last Saturday had an obstacle on the path still. North side in front of 7-11 remains a constant issue.
  • Bikes Mean Business and the Lower Lonsdale BIA Central Lonsdale
