AT Implementation Plan - Engagement
Extensive public consultation was completed for the development of the ATMP, which informed the city-wide cycle network, the transportation focus areas and the recommended programs and policies. After the ATMP was adopted, additional consultation was completed to inform the Implementation Plan through recommended phasing and priorities of the city-wide infrastructure and routes, transportation focus area priorities and supporting programs and initiatives.
Public engagement consisted of an online survey and several pop-up events across the city to hear from a broad range of residents and stakeholders. The pop-up events included information on cycling routes, transportation focus areas and programs and initiatives. The events were strategically selected at different times and geographical locations across the city and included the following:
- Cataraqui Centre Transit Transfer Point
- Woodbine Park
- Princess Street Promenade
- Party in the Park at Grenadier Park
- Douglas Fluhrer Park
- Teddy Bear Picnic at Lake Ontario Park
- Kingston Multi Cultural Arts Festival, Confederation Park
- Movies in the Square
The online survey gave the participants an opportunity to select and prioritize cycle routes. It also provided an opportunity for feedback on specific features that would enhance or encourage residents to ride, walk or roll more often. It also allowed participants to prioritize the transportation focus areas and the supportive programs and initiatives. This feedback informed the technical analysis to determine projects and programs that are shown in this plan.
