During the latest Parksville city council meeting on Monday, Dec. 6, council received a letter from Bowinn Ma, minister of state for infrastructure.

Ma wrote that the ministry is advancing detailed design plans for the new multi-use path, with expected completion of the plans by summer 2022.

“I appreciate the city’s interest in prioritizing active transportation in your community and am grateful for your leadership on this,” wrote the minister of state. “You may be aware that the provincial government’s Clean B.C. ‘Roadmap to 2030’ aims to increase the share of trips made by walking, cycling and transit to 30 per cent by 2030, while also reducing vehicle-kilometres travelled by car by 25 per cent by 2030.”
