Richmond Road/Westboro Transportation Management Implementation Plan Open House

23 06 2010

As part of the Council approved Richmond Road/Westboro Community Design Plan direction was given to develop a Transportation Management Implementation Plan (TMIP) for this area.

The main aim of the project is to detail how over a period of years a lower automobile modal share could be achieved though the identification and evaluation of initiatives to promote transit and other non-vehicular modes of transportation (e.g. cycling, pedestrian, and other transportation demand management initiatives).

These measures would reduce vehicle dependency in order to accommodate anticipated development in the Richmond Road/Westboro community and to respond to future capacity deficiencies in the Richmond Road corridor.

You are invited to an Open House at:

Tuesday June 29, 2010
6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
All Saints Anglican Church, Main Hall
347 Richmond Road

In order to:

  • share feedback about existing barriers to non-vehicular modes of transportation
  • get information about existing vehicle trips and future goals for trip reductions, current City of Ottawa citywide plans and other potential initiatives
