Sustainable Transportation Survey Questions Summary

Candidate name 1. What does sustainable transportation mean to you?

Mike Bleskie

Sustainable transportation means a mix of transportation options that actively reduce or eliminate carbon and emissions output.

Terry Kett (Incumbent)

. I believe that people of all ages and abilities
whether walking, cycling or using public transit deserve consideration in the
transportation system and in the Official Plan so that roads under the city’s jurisdiction will
be planned as ‘complete streets’, enabling users of all ages and abilities – pedestrians, bicycles, transit riders and motorists – to interact and move more safely along and across city streets.

Vincent Lacroix

Cost recovery,accessible to all,user friendly.

Chris Nerpin

For me, the concept of sustainable transportation means building a network of transportation infrastructure (roads, sidewalks, nature paths, bike paths/lanes, public transit, etc.) that meets the needs of the community, is efficient, respects and compliments the natural environment, and most importantly ensures that future needs are considered in the planning and building of this network. It should, in effect, compliment the business, social, and residential needs of the community, and also be able to accommodate changes in transportation technologies.

Lynne Reynolds

Complete Streets that are are walkable, cyclable and have good traffic flow.

Candidate name 2. How are you going to support it in our community?

Mike Bleskie

I want to work actively with the Sustainable Mobility Advisory Panel to investigate priorities in creating pathways for alternative transportation, and revamp our transit service to become even more relevant.

Terry Kett (Incumbent)

I am promoting a “Complete Street Policy” I intend to work with the public, my fellow
councillors and staff to implement this policy.The 2ns Ave project is the fitst step I led in this direction

Vincent Lacroix

If elected,I would welcome to be member of transportation committee.

Chris Nerpin

Planning for sustainable transportation in Greater Sudbury and its communities needs to be a collaborative effort form numerous city departments, including those that oversee Parks, Transit, Roads, Economic Development, Infrastructure, and so many more. I will work with council and staff to build a cohesive and effective framework that focuses on bringing all of these interests into a synergy that can then facilitate effective planning and management of a sustainable transportation network throughout all of Greater Sudbury.

Lynne Reynolds

Mike Bleskie

All cycling and pedestrian infrastructure needs to be prioritized in ways similar to road infrastructure if we are to manage our finances properly. While I want to see funding for these projects, just like we saw with the effort to have lanes included on Second Avenue, we need to make the level of funding fluid to coincide with our budget.
