What is this engagement about?
MacMillan Park, also known as Cathedral Grove, is world-renowned and attracts approximately 500,000 visitors annually. Visitors come to the area via Highway 4 which runs through the park.
The Ministry of Transportation & Infrastructure has made safety improvements to this section of highway. However, the increase in the park’s popularity has led to concerns about pedestrian crossings, unsafe parking practices and other traffic issues.
Between November 21, 2018 and January 4, 2019, we gathered your input on how to address safety concerns while protecting environmental, social and cultural values through open houses and an online questionnaire.
The ministry held two open houses:
- Port Alberni on November 21, 2018
- Parksville on November 22, 2018
How can my contribution make a difference?
Recommendations and options for pedestrian and traffic safety improvements will be presented back to the public for future engagement in the spring 2019.
