Shape our City’s Mobility Strategy!

The City of North Vancouver is developing a Mobility Strategy with a vision of creating healthy streets that work for everyone. Our new strategy will be the playbook for planning and making decisions about our streets and how we get around for the next decade.


We Want to Hear From You

We’re currently engaging community members on the Draft Mobility Strategy as we work towards a final version for City Council consideration later this spring.

In-person pop-up sessions are on hold due to COVID-19 impacts. Updates will be posted on this site.

We've extended the deadline for input to allow for more input from stakeholders and residents. Deadline for feedback is February 11, 2022 at 4:00 pm.


What We’ve Heard

Through Phase 1 engagement in the spring of 2021, we heard several main themes about challenges and opportunities for our streets:

  • Increased traffic is making us feel frustrated and less safe which is impacting livability for our residents and businesses.
  • We want to use our vehicles less often, but other forms of transit are perceived to not be as convenient, efficient, or comfortable.
  • Mobility options need to be more affordable and accessible, and the transportation system can still become more equitable.
  • The prosperity of our neighbourhoods and businesses depend on our streets, which need to accommodate a range of new uses, while ensuring efficient movement of people and goods.

What’s in the Draft Mobility Strategy?

Vision

Our vision is to create healthy streets that work for everyone. This vision sits atop the strategy framework as an aspirational guide to the plan, supported by goals and strategies to create a safe, vibrant, low-carbon city that provides plenty of options for people to get around.

Goals

This vision will be achieved through four goals that were supported by our community and stakeholders during the first phase of engagement in the spring of 2021.

  • Our streets will help our city prosper and be a vibrant place.
  • Our streets will support real and accessible choices for how we move around.
  • Our streets will be safe and comfortable.
  • Our streets will reduce our impact on climate change and the environment.

Strategies and Actions

To accomplish the vision and goals in the Draft Mobility Strategy, we propose eleven strategies that are supported with actions and sub-actions. These can be read in detail in the Draft Mobility Strategy, but below are some highlights.

  • Phase 1 Summary & Wrap-Up

    Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

    April 30, 2021: Thank you for your interest in our Mobility Strategy. Our Phase 1 input period has concluded, and we're now working through all of your feedback on our early ideas for a vision, goals, and key directions for our new plan. Check back for updates.


    The City of North Vancouver is developing a Mobility Strategy to improve how we move around our City. When finished, this strategy will be our playbook for guiding decisions about how we plan, design, operate and maintain our transportation system today and over the next decade.


    A New Way Forward

    Our City is changing. We are moving around differently and there is more demand on our streets. We need to be strategic about making the best use of limited space we have on our streets. We need healthy streets that work for everyone. Learn more about our mobility network and how we are moving within our City and to other areas in the Lower Mainland.


    Shifting Focus

    Mobility is more than just getting from one place to another. It’s about having safe, efficient, and affordable choices to count on to easily get you where you need to go – work, school, parks, community centres, shops, and more.

    The Mobility Strategy will replace our Long-Term Transportation Plan (LTTP) that was created in 2008. Much has changed since then and it is time for us to prepare for what’s next by developing a transportation plan with strategic actions and policies that will help take us towards our goals. Learn more about other ways we are shifting focus to develop our Mobility Strategy.


    We’ve Developed a Starting Point for Our Strategy

    Over the last few months, we’ve been developing an initial framework for our Mobility Strategy. This framework outlines our early ideas for a vision, goals, and set of strategies to help us re-envision how we move in our City and beyond. We’ve developed this framework based exploring some of the key trends and circumstances influencing our transportation system, best practices in transportation planning, regular input from the community, and the guiding principles in our City’s Official Community Plan. This framework provides a starting point for our strategy.

    Thanks For Your Feedback

    The vision, goals, and strategies we are proposing for our Mobility Strategy are still just early ideas. The input and ideas you shared with us in March and April will be used to help refine this framework to ensure it reflects the values and priorities of our community as a whole. Later this spring, we will start to develop a full draft strategy that will be shared later this year for review and input. Learn more about our timelines.
