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.

    I live on West 27th Street NV. A few months ago we heard that our street was to be widened or in some way modified. Is this a possibility and is it included the City's Mobility Strategy?

    Ross Spooner asked 7 months ago

    Hello, and thank you for your question. The Mobility Strategy provides long-range strategic direction to guide decision-making for future mobility throughout the community. From this, specific corridor and area planning will follow a process where residents will have opportunity for input. What you may be referring to is that the City is undertaking surveying work on W 27th Street for a water main replacement that will be occurring later in 2022. Notifications of this work will be circulated to residents in the area when dates are determined.

    Could we use the BCRail Budcars to move between Park and Tilford area and Park Royal/ Ambleside … or even Horseshoe Bay?????

    Gladys asked 7 months ago

    Hello, and thank you for your inquiry. Using existing rail lines to move people across the North Shore has benefits given our constrained supply of road space. However, this would require significant negotiation with Class 1 Railways and users of these facilities. There may be opportunities for running passenger rail along these facilities as part of the Burrard Inlet Rapid Transit initiative indicated within Strategy 10 of the Draft Mobility Strategy. The specific alignment and technology will be determined at a later point in time. There will be several public engagement and comment opportunities for North Shore community members as this project progresses.
