Off Street Pathways Plan
The purpose of the Off Street Pathways Plan is to determine possible locations for off-street bicycle pathways and connections within the Kelowna and Ellison areas.
These may include stand-alone pathways for commuter and recreational use, or pathways that act as connecting links between existing or future bicycle facilities.
The Off Street Bicycle Pathways and Connections Plan expands upon the City’s Bicycle Network Master Plan, which was created in 1995 and has guided the creation of over 210 kilometers of bicycle lanes and routes along city streets.
While the City will continue to extend the bicycle route network, the Off-Street Bicycle Pathways and Connections Plan will help increase the popularity and viability of cycling as an alternative form of transportation to the automobile.
Two public open houses were held earlier this year; the first in January and the second in May.
Almost 100 potential off-street pathways and connections were identified at the first open house. The locations were then analyzed and prioritized by the City’s consultant, Urban Systems Ltd.
The second open house presented the prioritized pathways to the public through displays and maps.
