What was this engagement about?
MacMillan Provincial Park, also known as Cathedral Grove, is world-renowned for its giant old-growth Douglas Firs, which attract approximately 500,000 visitors annually. Most visitors arrive by vehicle, park along Highway 4 and cross the highway to visit both sides of the park.
The Cathedral Grove Pedestrian and Traffic Safety Study is working collectively with park visitors, Indigenous communities, law enforcement and governing partners to find solutions to ongoing safety and traffic concerns surrounding parking and pedestrian movements along Highway 4.
The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure has completed the first phase of public consultation through open houses and an online questionnaire.
The goal of the phase two engagement process was to learn more about how to address safety and parking concerns at Cathedral Grove, while protecting environmental, social and cultural values of the park.
How will my contribution make a difference?
The ministry will use the public input from Phase 2 of the engagement to reduce the long list of options to a short list of preferred options that will be shared with the public in a third round of engagement in the fall of 2019.
The Summary Engagement Report for Phase 2 Engagement will be released on the website in the fall of 2019.
