The City of Nanaimo is developing a new long-term Transportation Master Plan. Transportation touches every part of our daily lives, affecting how we move, how food, goods and services reach us, how we access employment, our household budgets, what housing choices we make, how our City looks and feels and how we interact with our fellow citizens.
As our City approaches 100,000 people, these issues will become more complex and more important, requiring an overall plan for transportation moving into the future. The Nanaimo Transportation Master Plan (NTMP) will guide transportation decision-making in the City over the next 25 years and beyond and will recommend improvements for all modes of transportation, including walking, cycling, public transit, goods movement, and vehicles. This process is important to ensure that transportation investments work towards achieving the City’s strategic goals, make the best use of our tax dollars and help shift towards a more sustainable future.
