March 2, 2016 NACITE Luncheon
Presented by Sarah Feldman
Edmonton’s Transit Strategy will set a future vision for transit in Edmonton and strategic goals to move towards achieving that vision over the next 10 years. Having completed a comprehensive technical review of Edmonton Transit in 2014, the Transit Strategy project is focused on hearing public perspectives on the role of transit in building a great city. Starting in the summer of 2015, the project began with collecting the ideas of thousands of Edmontonians, and then sought feedback to prioritize these ideas. In 2016 the project will move into a phase of discussing trade-offs necessary in order to make strategic policy choices. Sarah’s presentation will provide an overview of the project, describe the innovative methods of public engagement being applied to hear from a diverse cross section of Edmontonians, share the outcomes from the 2015 engagement, and outline next steps.
