Sustainable Transportation Survey Questions Summary

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

Robin Auger

Provide efficient public transportation with a schedule that attracts more users as well as ensuring plowing is at a level that allows foot traffic to easily manouver throughout the City. It also means when planning future development to include alternate modes of transportation beside motorized.

Gordon Drysdale

Mike Jakubo

Sustainable transportation are means of navigating the City that are cost effective and environmentally friendly including public transit, cycling, walking and car pooling.

Dave Kilgour (Incumbent)

Sustainable transportation refers to encouraging the move to modes of transportation which rely less on fossil fuels and motorized vehicles. Sustainability can be achieved by encouraging the use of public transit, biking and walking paths, car pooling etc. Further moves towards making public transit more friendly accessible and affordable through expanding routes and making the use of transit more convenient and welcoming. Other items such as the espousal of Complete Streets such as those planned for the new development around Silver Hills and the expansion of destination trails would also promote a move towards Sustainable Transportation becoming a reality.

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

Robin Auger

The first thing we need to do is take a long look at the transportation schedule to see what routes need to be adjusted to provide better service to all the areas of the city. Also we could like other cities provide a free service to the most underused parts of our routes to get more riders who will then see the advantages of using public Transit. Next we must do a better job plowing side walks and road ways to aid those who are ``differently abled`` to get around as well as make it easier for public transit users to get to their stops. We must form a committee for the bike users in our city where they can bring to us a better plan to make bike travel more safe and efficient for them as well as how to attract new bike riders in our city. Moving people throughout our city so that they can easily and efficiently reach all areas should be a priority. The roadways, sidewalks and public transit are how money travels into our city, we have to make it as easy as possible for our citizens to reach our businesses or recreational facilities or they will just turn on their computers to spend their money.

Transit must be more frequent and available and we must make it worth rider's while by offering better user discounts like day passes and family passes. These initiatives would boost ridership which needs to be the ultimate goal. Much can be done to improve our walking path system while bringing residents closer to our City's natural environment. We can work to complete the Junction Creek path system so we can walk from one end of the City to the other. Many residents commute via bicycle, but most areas lack sufficient and safe bike paths. It will be hard to change existing subdivisions, but where new ones are being out in proper bike lanes should be installed and when we are pursuing traffic calming, the City should ensure bike lanes are not secondary as this is not safe for drivers or cyclists.

Dave Kilgour (Incumbent)

I currently sit as the council rep on the Sustainable Mobility Advisory Panel. I continue to encourage members and others to take an active role in the planning process by making presentations whenever possible and by attending planning meetings as speak in favour of poor developments and positively of good planning items.
