The Kelowna 2030 Official Community Plan, which was adopted by City Council on May 30, 2011, includes policy for Complete Streets. Chapter 7 highlights a number of ‘general transportation policies’. The overall objective (7.6) is “[Placing an] increased emphasis on sustainable modes of transportation (walking, cycling, transit) while maintaining automobile, commercial goods and emergency vehicle mobility.”
Policy 2 under Objective 7.6 is for Complete Streets. The City of Kelowna outlines this policy as follows: “Ensure new roads are built as complete streets that incorporate sidewalks and on-street bike lanes on arterial and major collector roads and off-road bike paths as per the Active Transportation Plan and provides for efficient transit service, as well as sufficient space to include landscaping.”
