Capital Pathways 2006 Strategic Plan
The Pathway Network for Canada’s Capital Region: 2006 Strategic Plan sets out a clear and common vision for the integrated network of pathways within Canada’s Capital Region. The 2006 Strategic Plan was prepared by the National Capital Commission in collaboration with the City of Ottawa and Ville de Gatineau, and in consultation with stakeholders, interest groups, and the public. The plan serves as a valuable strategic planning tool for the NCC and the cities of Ottawa and Gatineau to ensure concerted efforts toward:
- Future pathway planning
- Management of the Capital Pathway Network
The strategic plan will assist all stakeholders in providing adequate services to users, in order to make experiences on the Capital Pathway safe and enjoyable for visitors and residents.
To access the document, Pathway Network for Canada’s Capital Region: 2006 Strategic Plan, please follow the link to the document and maps located on the National Capital Commission website.
Ottawa Council endorsed this pathway plan in November 2006. The Capital Pathway Network is a key component of the 2006 Greenspace Master Plan: Strategies for Ottawa’s Urban Greenspaces.
