  • New Westminster Breaths a Sigh of Relief, says New Westminster Environmental Partners – New Westminster Environmental Partners
    improve access for the businesses in the Brunette Industrial area it was clear that the solutions were not to open the door wider to more traffic from the Lougheed and Highway 1 corridors During the process TransLink could not clearly articulate how this massively expensive project 160 million for 700 metres of road would benefit New Westminster or how the project fit in its own Transport 2040 vision plan In this context the plan was also bad for the region The City of New Westminster now has the opportunity to complete its Master Transportation Plan scheduled to begin this year without a lopsided road project threatening any hope of achieving traffic normalcy in the City The City can now look for opportunities to work with TransLink and other partners to invest in infrastructure and solutions that complement TransLink s 2040 goals and contribute the City s livability TransLink their staff and consultants deserve considerable credit for running a thorough consultation process that allowed all parties to articulate their concerns The result of this process made it easy to understand why a project such as the UBE could not work for all stakeholders The residents of New Westminster were able to speak with a common and clear voice in a true community building exercise It was telling that although the Mayor of Coquitlam had considered this a high priority project almost no one from Coquitlam bothered to show up for any of the UBE open houses or workshops Clearly this project was not a high priority for the residents of that City The New Westminster Environmental Partners look forward to working with the City and TransLink towards improving the safety and congestion along the Brunette corridor by reducing traffic and creating solutions that encourage people and goods to use the multitude

  • NWEP Quarterly Sustainability Challenge backgrounder – New Westminster Environmental Partners
    easily achieved actions in which the city can show leadership on issues of the environment This quarter s challenge is to conduct meaningful public consultation for the city proposed Green Action Plan The NWEP Urban Sustainability Forum will be held at the New Westminster Public Library on the evening of Tuesday June 19th from 7pm until 8 30pm Background With less than one month remaining before City staff has been directed by a unanimous New Westminster Council resolution to report on the implementation of a comprehensive set of policies for the City s proposed Green Action Plan NWEP is concerned no public consultation has been completed or scheduled While environmental issues and climate change in particular are now the top priority issues for Canadians New Westminster has been trailing other jurisdictions in adopting basic measures such as a greenhouse gas reduction strategy The proposed action plan has not been posted on the City s web site and there are no references to the plan or opportunities for public input on the site We had hoped to see more initiative on this issue after such a strong mandate being sent through the unanimous vote in January The lack of any further information on the plan dialog with citizens to poll their key urban environmental issues or even simply posting the plan as tabled is very concerning We hope this is simply an oversight and that the city is as committed to adopting meaningful measures as previously stated says Laird Show the full resolution Summary of the Green Action Plan by You may also like Join Us for Our First Green Drinks of the Year 8 Apr 2015 New Westminster Community Dialogue Evolving our Understanding and Action on Climate Change 10 Aug 2014 Show Your Love for the Fraser River 3 Sep
