Plan for trails on public land

The District consulted with the community about trails on public land starting in 2015. Community input and feedback formed the basis for the resulting Plan for Trails on Public Land

The Plan for Trails on Public Land is a policy document that provides guidance for decisions about trails in West Vancouver and a framework for moving forward on several trails-related topics that were identified by the community. The plan helps articulate why trails and trail opportunities are important to residents.

On Monday, April 9, Council adopted the 2018 Plan for Trails on Public Land.

Consultation History

Early consultation with stakeholders was held November 2015.

A wide-ranging public consultation was conducted in May 2016, including public meetings and a survey.

In July 2016, staff provided council with an update on the engagement findings with an information report.

In May 2017, a discussion paper was published, reviewing the status and issues and summarizing public feedback received.  The discussion paper was the subject of general public consultation in May 2017. During this stage, the recommendations received in earlier consultation were reviewed and prioritized.

In May and June 2017, further consultation was held with stakeholder groups.
