Active Transportation Plan | 2016
The District of Squamish developed a Complete Street approach in their 2016 “Active Transportation Plan.” The Plan’s number one strategy is to “focus on providing infrastructure that is comfortable for people of all ages and abilities and embrace the principles of complete streets wherever possible” (p. 5). However, the plan proposes that Complete Streets only be “considered” in new road construction or refurbishment (p. 62). The plan does recommend that the District create a Complete Streets toolbox (p. 63).
