As part of the 2017 budget process, Brantford City Council approved the review of the 2014 update to the 2007 Transportation Master Plan, to occur at the same time as the review of the City’s Master Servicing Plan and the City’s Official Plan. The 2017 Transportation Master Plan will include the Boundary Expansion Lands that were transferred from Brant County to the City on January 1, 2017. Staff will add the Transportation Master Plan recommendations to the 10-year capital forecast and the strategic objectives will be incorporated into Brantford’s Official Plan.

The Study

The City of Brantford is completing a Transportation Master Plan which will include strategies for transportation and active transportation networks. The Study will develop strategies for the management of transportation demand, truck route management, transit improvements and the active transportation network, including walking and cycling networks, for the next 25 years. The Study will also identify the individual projects required to complement these strategies, and prioritize these projects based on need and required timing. The recommended transportation network improvements will be subject to further study, public consultation, Council approval for funding and, unless previously approved, the requirements of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment Process.

The Process

The Study will define existing problems and opportunities, consider and evaluate solutions and identify preferred transportation network servicing and operation strategies. The Transportation Master Plan is being completed as a Class EA study, separate from the Master Servicing Plan, in accordance with the requirement of the Municipal Engineers Association (MEA) Class Environmental Assessment (EA) process for master planning (MEA, June 2000 as amended in 2007 and 2011). The Study is being undertaken based on Phases 1 and 2 of the Class EA processes for Master Plans.

Public Information Centres will be held throughout the process.

Objective

The objective of the Study is to ensure that the transportation system can accommodate growth and meet the needs of pedestrians, cyclists, transit users, goods movement and automobiles over the next 25 years.
