  • Metrotown to Park Royal via 2nd Narrows is 1 of several initial routes.

  1. Mtn Hwy: Ross Road to Arborlynn - money is budgeted for 2025. If we want it in 2024, we need to convince council to allocate the funds.

District of West Vancouver - Paul/Peter/Mike

Proposed bike lane up Cypress Bowl Road

  • Peter has been asked by John Weston to seek HUB North Shore support to the mayor for this proposal from the Canadian Health and Fitness Institute (see resolution at: https://wiki.bikehub.ca/images/3/37/2024-01-03_Proposed_bike_lane_up_Cypress_Bowl_Road.pdf).
    • Here is the concluding statement of the institute's resolution: "The Canadian Health and Fitness Institute, supported by stakeholders, requests that the District of West Vancouver, at its earliest convenience, create a segregated bicycle lane ascending Cypress Bowl Road."
    • I recommend a brief HUB letter of support to the mayor pointing out that Cypress Bowl Road is within the jurisdiction of the MoTI and there are other higher priority bike infrastructure projects that we would like to see constructed in West Vancouver, especially along the Marine Drive corridor east of 31st Street. Nevertheless, we can support this proposal for two reasons. Firstly, it would help meet HUB's objective of getting more people safely onto bicycles. Secondly, it would support our previous recommendation to the District for safe protected bike lanes on that portion of Cypress Bowl Road that will connect the planned Cypress Village to other West Vancouver Cycling Network components.
