Peterborough, ON - The City of Peterborough is conducting a comprehensive review and update of the City-wide Transportation Master Plan. The project will begin in September 2020 and is anticipated to be completed by December 2021.

The goals of the Transportation Master Plan are to:

  • Develop a transportation system that supports active transportation, transit, transit demand management and integrate with land use planning to support the growth and economic prosperity of the City;
  • Provide connections between the City, regional and provincial transportation systems;
  • Encourage the use of sustainable modes of travel to contribute to healthier communities, active lifestyles, safer streets, and reduced pollution; and
  • Support movement of people and goods through an efficient, integrated and multi-modal system that meets the needs of all people.

Public input is essential to the Transportation Master Plan and there will be several consultation and engagement activities hosted to collect feedback and input. Residents, stakeholders, businesses and decision-makers will have an opportunity to shape the development of the plan.

Public consultation and project progress updates over the course of the study will be available via the study webpage: www.connectptbo.ca/moveptbo. Please also follow the City’s social media for project updates and information.

“We want your input to shape this plan to make sure that it reflects the needs, opinions and interests of those who live, work and play within the City,” said Councillor Don Vassiliadis, co-chair of the transportation portfolio.

The Transportation Master Plan will be conducted in accordance with the requirements of Phases 1 and 2 of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment which is an approved process under the Environmental Assessment Act.
