CITY OF TEMISKAMING SHORES TRANSPORTATION STUDY

SAMPLE LINK TO SURVEY 

THE STUDY

The City of Temiskaming Shores is initiating a Transportation Study to investigate the current transportation network related problems within the City; particularly two of its downtown cores. The Transportation Study will be the City’s blueprint for strategic transportation planning and direction for the future. The Transportation Study will establish a transportation system to better serve residents, employers, employees, and visitors while accommodating all modes of transportation (e.g., public transit, commuter travel, commercial vehicles, and active transportation). There is a unique opportunity through this study to create a real sense of place, a community where people choose to meet, dine, and stay for a while instead of driving through; a city where people can safely and pleasantly travel with two feet or two wheels.

THE PROCESS

The study is being undertaken in accordance with the requirements of Phases 1 and 2 of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment process, which is an approved process under the Environmental Assessment Act. Phases 1 and 2 of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment process are as such:

  • Phase 1 will assess existing conditions, context, challenges, and opportunities; and
  • Phase 2 will develop network plans and identify triggers for different infrastructure needs, phasing of projects and an action plan.

YOUR INVOLVEMENT IS IMPORTANT! WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU:

A key component of the study will be consultation with stakeholders, regulatory agencies and the general public. Anyone with an interest in this study has the opportunity to get involved and provide input. Two (2) Public Meetings have been planned during the study to inform the process to the stakeholders, present findings and receive public and stakeholder input. A notice containing the time and location of the Public Meetings shall be published in local newspapers and posted on the study website at XXXX. [RG1]
