Transcript of Copy of Sustainable Mobility Advisory Panel OP Prezi

25 % of adults are obese, compared to 18% provincially

Increased from 19% in 2007/2008

Children are 12lbs heavier than they were 30 years ago

2005 study, 14% of Sudbury children were obese -- compared to 8% of Canadian children at the time We Are Fat We Are Old Our median age is 41 years, compared to 39 years provincially

15% of our population is 65 years and older, compared to 12% provincially

The population of Greater Sudburians that are 65 years and older is expected to grow to 21% by 2021 In 2006, 30% of baby boomers were obese compared to 24% of seniors

52% of those baby boomers led inactive lives, compared to 50% of seniors

58% of baby boomers do not think their weight impacts their health We Are Not As Fit As Today's Seniors 14.5 % of Greater Sudburians are disabled, this number is expected to
increase with an aging population

1/3 of Greater Sudburians do not drive, this number is expected to
increase with an aging population We Are Less Mobile Health care costs make up 42 per cent of the Ontario government’s total program spending

Our aging and increasingly obese population will increase these costs Health Care Costs Improve walking, cycling and transit in Greater Sudbury
by adopting the recommendations made in the Sustainable
Mobility Plan, June 2010 What is the cure? Develop and promote education and awareness programs for pedestrains and motorists and cyclists

Educate the public as to how the "built environment" affects their travel choices, physical health and lifestyle

Develop an awareness campaign highlighting how public transit can serve Sudburians' needs Educate The Public Complete Street Policy

Priority Index System for pedestrians and cyclists

Transportation Demand Management

Sustainable Mobility Impact Assessment for all new development applications

Encourage mixed use, high density connected communities Adjust Our Policy Let's Become a Healthy City Greater Sudbury ranked 112 out of 180 for walking or biking to

Behind Thunder Bay (92), Sault Ste Marie (79), Timmins (41),
North Bay (26) and Elliot Lake (8) MoneySense Magazine Current OP states "pedestrian and bicycle safety programs within the city will be supported and coordinated"

Strengthen: "the provsion of user-oriented information for all pedestrians, cyclists and other road users to increase awareness of non-motorized networks, user guidelines and safety requirements" (Hamilton)

Wayfinding map for cycling, rules of the road, educating all (pedestrians, cyclists and drivers) "proper road behaviour" Education and Awareness Programs Under "Urban Design Objectives": h) promote the principles of connectivity, complete streets and communities.

Hamilton and Elliot Lake have statements in their OP's covering public education on urban design Built Environment

Enhance the Rider's Guide so it is easy for the inexperience rider to use

Promote transit as an efficient and economical way to travel

Promote transit as a healthy way to travel for both the environment and human health Transit Programs Priority Index Systems for Pedestrians and Cyclists Prioritizing the construction of pedestrian and cyclist infrastructire to eliminate gaps in the network We are your advisory panel. We have been appointed to:

To assist staff and Council in implementing a vision for a
holistic approach to a multi-modal transportation system
where citizens can walk, cycle and/or use public transit
efficiently and safely to get to their destination SMAP All new applications (new developments, roadways etc.) will require:

a) identifying the required transit, pedestrian, and cycling facilities

b) Determine how the development can be efficiently and effectively serviced by transit

c) Use City design guidelines when modifying sustainable mobility infrastructure. Sustainable Mobility Impact Assessment Hire a Transportation Demand Management expert

Implement a comprehensive Transportation Demand Management Program

Reduce peak hour auto use by striving to achieve the following modal split targets:
Walking/Cycling: 7% (2006) to 9% in 2024
Public Transit: 5% (2006) to 13% in 2024

Work with school boards/transit to find ways to minimize duplication of public transit (see Peterborough's Official Plan) Transportation Demand Management Increase densities to support public transit

Only permit development of land, residential, commercial or industrial, within 1,000 metres of a transit stop with appropriate safe routes to the transit stop

Permit and encourage a mix of land uses to reduce the need for auto trips

Create continuous active transportation routes to connect communities throughout Greater Sudbury

Connect Green Spaces to create opportunites for off road non motorized trails Encourage Mixed Use/High Density/Connected Neighbourhoods Only 5% of Greater Sudburians use public transit

Provincial average is 13% Transit Use Statistics Canada, 2006 Community Profiles Ottawa Official Plan, 2003 Pedestrians Public Transit Bicycles Greater Sudbury Vital Signs, 2011;

Service Vehicles Taxis/HOV Single Occupancy
Vehicles Improve Our Infrastructure A complete pedestrian network that allows everyone from 8 to 80 get to their destinations safely and efficiently

A complete cycling network which will connect residents and visitors to their destinations.

A transit system that supports safe and efficient travel Using a Pedestrian Priority Index ensure that identified gaps in the sidewalk and pathway networks and crosswalk infrastructures are constructed, improved and maintained in all seasons.

Construct sidewalks on both sides of the road

All new developments should be connected to existing developments and destinations for easy, efficient access for cyclists and pedestrians Pedestrian Network Complete the bicycle network connecting north - south - east & west

Ensure that there is adequate and secure bicycle parking facilities available at all major employment, retail and educational centers Complete Cycling Network
Increase the number of bus shelters

Ensure bus stops are safe: buffered from motorized traffic (sidewalk or green boulevard), snow is cleared from stops and paths to stops, lights, easy to walk to

Post schedule information that is accessible at all stops and transit maps posted at major stops

Current OP suggests for improvement of bus shelters with "route information displays"

Expand the rack and roll program to all buses by 2015

Ensure that there is adequate and secure bicycle parking at the transit terminal and other major transit stops Transit Sustainable Mobility Advisory Panel
