The Thunder Bay Transportation Master Plan (TMP) will be a planning and policy document which will guide the City’s transportation infrastructure investments for the next 20 years and beyond. The study will develop a practical, long-term plan for the City’s transportation system for both goods movement and to meet the needs of pedestrians, cyclists, transit riders, and motorists.
The TMP will be informed by existing policies such as the Official Plan, the Active Transportation Plan, the Transit Master Plan, the EarthCare Sustainability Plan, the Multi-Year Accessibility Plan, the Age Friendly City Services Action Plan, and the Corporate Strategic Plan – Becoming Our Best.
Joint Public Engagement Session
A public engagement session is being held on Monday, November 6, 2017 from 6:00 to 8:00 pm at Fort William First Nation Community Centre.
The session will be a joint engagement session to learn about the Transportation Master Plan, Thunder Bay`s Official Plan, and Thunder Bay Transit.
