The District of Clearwater is pleased to advise that a Road Cross Section Bylaw has been passed by Council. Through an innovative collaborative partnership between the District of Clearwater, Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure (MOTI), OPUS International, Interior Health Authority (IHA) and the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada (HSF) the District was able to take a step forward in adopting a bylaw to Establish Subdivision and Development Standards. The bylaw will provide guidelines for the design of roads to accommodate walking, biking, driving, scooters, and shared spaces. It also includes a Road Network Plan, Context Zones, Cross-Section Framework, and Cross-Section Illustrations.
The District is at a critical stage for planning the future of its community. There are large tracks of undeveloped land within the municipality paralleling Highway No. 5 and located in the core areas prime for development. This created an opportunity to develop a road network plan to assure long-term financial sustainability for Clearwater's current and future tax base. The new bylaw is the result of two successful studies involving input and collaboration from MOTI, the District of Clearwater, Opus International, IHA, HSF and developers in putting together the framework which will be used for new road construction and existing road retrofits.
