CRD Pedestrian & Cycling Master Plan

Here is the CRD Pedestrian And Cycling Master Plan. It is a fairly extensive document that promotes all 13 of the Communities within the CRD to work together to create a regional network of cycling trails and routes, as well as addressing design guidelines, mapping, facilities,  education, transit integration, enforcement, planning and funding.
There are huge benefits of having all the communities work together on this. As well the CRD can take a role in coordination, helping to eliminate duplicated efforts, and to help in securing funding.
Take a look, and remember that there is always the need for continual public input.
The Greater Victoria Cycling Coalition has set up a committee to monitor and provide ongoing input to the plan. They are looking for volunteers from each community. I will be planning to participate as the Sooke and JDF Regional District representative, but would love someone to assist me on that. My schedule often has me out of town when meetings happen, so it would be good to have a back up person.
