Pedestrian and Sidewalk Master Plan Survey #2 - Open until August 24, 2022

The District of Oak Bay is working to create a Pedestrian and Sidewalk Master Plan to guide the development of our community’s sidewalk network and to identify additional strategies to improve the pedestrian experience for residents, visitors, and people working in Oak Bay.

The Pedestrian and Sidewalk Master Plan will emphasize the priority of pedestrians by laying the foundation for enhanced pedestrian environments and supportive policies to improve the walking/rolling experience in Oak Bay for all ages, abilities, and socio-economic means.

This survey is a follow-up to Public Participation Survey #1 from February 2022. Since that time, the project team worked to understand the key issues identified by the community and key stakeholder groups. They observed and collected additional pedestrian and traffic volume data, and developed a suite of potential design measures that could be applied to various locations to improve safety, comfort, enjoyment, and navigability around Oak Bay.

Now, the project team wants to understand what types of improvements the community is most supportive of. This survey will take approximately 5 minutes to complete.

Paper copies are available at:

  • Henderson Recreation Centre
  • Monterey Recreation Centre
  • Municipal Hall
  • Oak Bay Recreation Centre

About the Pedestrian and Sidewalk Master Plan Project

The Pedestrian and Sidewalk Master Plan provides an opportunity to build an inclusive and connected pedestrian network that strengthens the quality of life for our community. Enhancing the pedestrian network also helps to improve connections between other modes, such as transit. The key is to ensure connections are meaningful and provide continuous and direct routes that are safe, comfortable, enjoyable, and navigable for users of all ages and abilities.

The objectives of the Pedestrian and Sidewalk Master Plan are to:

1. Identify barriers to walking and other emerging issues. Develop strategies to address them
2. Recommend new sidewalk locations and missing links within the network
3. Develop a Sidewalk Priority Index with cost estimate
4. Develop pedestrian and sidewalk design standards
5. Develop a implementation and funding plan
