Active Transportation Network Plan

The FVRD is developing an Active Transportation Network Plan (ATNP) to improve transportation safety and efficiency for active commuting and recreation. Active transportation is non-motorized transportation modes such as walking, cycling, rolling, mobility aids, e-bikes and e-scooters.

This plan is part of our efforts to improve the region's transportation system and lessen its impact on our air quality. It's also about promoting health by giving people more opportunities to walk and bike. The focus is on communities in the FVRD electoral areas, identifying opportunities for improved network connections and creating pathways that are safe and accessible for everyone. We are also considering the bigger picture by making sure this plan connects with neighbouring municipalities' ATNPs and major trail networks linking important places together to create a strong network that benefits everyone, whether they're commuting to an activity or enjoying the outdoors.

Next Steps

Round two of community engagement has now concluded. Building upon the input gathered in both phases of engagement, the next steps in the ATNP project involve integrating the information received from public engagement, Electoral Area Directors, Indigenous communities, the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure and other government agencies, community user groups and the technical data analysis to develop the draft FVRD Active Transportation Network plan. Staff will also collaborate with FVRD municipalities to ensure alignment between the FVRD ATNP and municipal active transportation plans, establishing a cohesive regional network.

The draft plan will be presented to the FVRD Board in Fall 2024 and then posted to this ATNP project page for community feedback.

    Thank you for your question regarding the Lakeside trail. The Lakeside Trail is an important community connection and further development of the trail is a priority that has been identified by the community during the first round of engagement. One of the proposed routes in the FVRD Active Transportation Network Plan is to complete the Lakeside Trail from Cultus Lake North (Lindell Beach) to Cultus Lake South (Entrance Bay), filling the gap in the existing trail route. We will be presenting the proposed network plan to the community at our community meeting on February 27, 2024  from 6:00 - 8:00 pm at the Cultus Lake School. Please feel free to attend and provide input on the plan during this next phase of community engagement.

    Thank you for your interest in the FVRD's Active Transportation Network Plan (ATNP). The FVRD’s ATNP Plan is focused on creating safe and accessible active transportation opportunities for people of all ages and abilities within the region's electoral areas. 

    In developing the FVRD ANTP, a comprehensive assessment of the existing and future conditions within the region has been conducted. This involved a thorough review of planning documents from member municipalities, First Nation communities, and the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure (MOTI), among others. Our goal is to create a plan that aligns with and enhances existing initiatives, fostering connectivity and integration across jurisdictions.

    In areas that are applicable, the FVRD ANTP will actively seek to connect and integrate with the City of Chilliwack's Active Transportation Plan, the City of Abbotsford's Transit and Transportation Plan, and the BC Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure's plans for the Highway 1 Expansion. The FVRD ATNP will not supersede any of these plans, but will focus on network alignment. The FVRD is working with representatives from member municipalities, First Nation communities, MOTI, and community user groups to ensure the proposed network plan is safe and connected.
