Active Transportation


February 23rd, 2023: The Open House event on Tuesday the 21st was a success! We had over 100 people attend. We heard lots of support for this infrastructure and some insightful feedback on how to improve it further. The City will complete a "What We Heard" report and take a presentation to Council. Please see the project's Technical Design Report and Preferred Design Drawings in the column on the right side of this page.

The City of Nelson is offering complimentary bus tickets to get to and from Granite Point Golf Course. Visit the Development Services department in City Hall on Tuesday to pick up your tickets! Catch the No. 3 Bus from Ward St. & Baker St., exit the bus at Crease Ave. & West Houston St., and walk two blocks.

This valuable feedback has been condensed into a "What We Heard Report" in the side column under Active Transportation Documents. The next steps in the Public Engagement Strategy will commence soon.

Current Projects

Rosemont Transportation Improvements

The City is currently working on the next phase of the Active Transportation Implementation Plan. This second phase will improve transportation for ALL modes of transport between the City core and the neighbourhood of Rosemont. This connection was indicated as a missing link in the Active Transportation Implementation Plan. Proposed improvements will include safer routing for pedestrians, better sightlines and more efficient traffic flows for drivers, and a separated lane for cyclists.

See below, an estimated timeline for this project updated October 28th, 2022.
