The District of Fort St. James has retained a qualified consultant to prepare a comprehensive Trails Master Plan that supports active modes of transportation. Important goals of the plan are to foster the usage of active transportation while providing for population and industry growth, the development of a high quality of life for residents, and to assist with municipal efforts to reduce community greenhouse gas emissions.
The primary objective of the Trails Master Plan is to provide set municipal development goals and actions for connected active transportation and to support sustainable economic and community development through trails and transportation planning. Included in the Trails Master Plan will be a map (both hard copy and electronic) which will highlight local and regional trails in our area. Some limited trails signage will be implemented as a component of this project.
We anticipate completion of the master plan by late September 2013.
