#BIKETORIA Neighbourhood Salons – December 1 to December 3 – Victoria BC
Three Biketoria Neighbourhood Salons will be held at accessible community hubs across Victoria and will provide an opportunity for residents to learn more and offer input on the design concepts before the next level of detailed conceptual designs are developed. These conversations will ensure that each corridor meets the expectations of residents, and helps mitigate any concerns related to safety, traffic congestion, cost, parking or transit impacts.
Join us for the following #BIKETORIA Salons:
Tuesday, December 1 from 6 p.m. – 8 p.m. at Cook Street Village Association Activity Centre (380 Cook Street)
Wednesday, December 2 from 6 p.m. – 8 p.m. at Caffe Fantastico (965 Kings Road)
Thursday, December 3 from 6 p.m. – 8 p.m. at Habit Coffee in Chinatown(552 Pandora Avenue)

Proposed 2018 AAA Network
In addition to the Biketoria Neighbourhood Salons being planned for early December, a meeting specifically for neighbourhood association boards and land-use committees, is being planned for January. This January meeting will benefit from having heard further community input on the detailed corridor concepts, and will assist in identifying key concerns and next steps to explore where additional consultation may be required in future.
The salons, online input, and the neighbourhoods meeting in January will inform a Biketoria Capital Implementation Strategy to prioritize investment to establish a minimum grid of cycling infrastructure. Prioritization of the minimum grid for the cycling network will ensure the network maximizes safety and facilitates active transportation as an attractive mode share while minimizing impacts to transit, vehicle movements, removal of parking, and additional cost implications. It also contemplates the need for further consultation and detailed planning on corridors outside of the priority ones to be identified.
