Consultation has concluded


The Creston Multi-Modal Transportation Plan is now mobile!


The Town of Creston’s first Multi-Modal Transportation Plan was endorsed and adopted by Council on August 23, 2022. A summary of the plan can be read HERE.

The Plan identifies how active transportation can play a multifaceted role in achieving Creston’s broader strategic priorities including a healthy, livable, and diverse community and enhancing partnerships across the Creston Valley all while reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The Plan reflects the community’s vision for the future of all forms of transportation in Creston, as captured through two rounds of engagement involving public surveys, stakeholder workshops and interviews. We appreciate your involvement and feedback!



About the Project

The Town of Creston is dedicated to evolving our transportation network. During our Official Community Plan outreach and other recent planning, the community expressed some clear goals for what our transportation network might look like and what that would mean for Creston.

We know that safety, accessibility, and ease all matter. So does maintaining and developing our transportation network in ways that are more socially, financially, and environmentally sustainable.

To that end, we started working on the Multi-Modal Transportation Plan (MMTP) in the Fall of 2021. Transportation planning offers us a unique opportunity to improve local quality of life, cultivate Creston’s small town character, contribute to our economic prosperity, and reduce our greenhouse gas emissions.

We collaborated with community members and partners to identify quick wins and priority actions that could be considered in the shorter term. We also mapped a longer-term vision for our transportation network to support the Town’s sustainability and success into the future.

Our hope was to better understand how you experience getting to, from, and around Town – whether by walking, rolling, cycling, transit, or vehicle. We worked with the community to develop “made in Creston” solutions for enhancing that experience. Parking and goods movement were also other topics explored.

    It’s there any plan for the town to have a paved path system that you would find in most great towns so that people could exercise without going on the roads?

    Kelly aleman asked about 2 years ago

    While every Town should aspire to having a paved path system, the goal of Creston’s Multi-Modal Transportation Plan is to identify the current state of transportation and transportation trends within Creston over the next 30 years.  One of the primary goals will be to promote active transportation (any form of human-powered transportation, including walking, cycling or rolling using a skateboard, in-line skates, wheelchairs, or other wheel-based forms of human-powered transportation) as a means of commuting to and from work, school, shopping etc.  The pedestrian facility improvements (sidewalks, multi-use paths & walkable shoulders) for our community will focus on missing links, pedestrian crossing and accessibility improvements.  Priority of these facilities will be on routes to school, streets with connections to recreational amenities including parks, community / recreation centers, trails, shopping and other facilities as well as streets and locations with transit facilities (e.g. bus stops).  The Multi-Modal plan will also look at options like a multi-use trail along Northwest Boulevard and a rail trail along the railroad tracks but these endeavors will require the cooperation of the BC Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure and Canadian Pacific Railway and may not be as easily accomplished as projects on or adjacent to Creston’s local roads.

    Is the Town interested in engaging with serious, committed, and professionally-qualified people who are stakeholders in the community?

    Aloha69 asked over 2 years ago

    The following response outlines the Town’s Engagement Process:

    The Town of Creston hosted a citizen survey and a Do It Yourself (DIY) Mobility Mapping exercise (Round 1) on “Let’s Talk Creston” between September 20th and October 12th, 2021.  The Round 1 results of this survey are available HERE.  In summary, 436 surveys were completed and 22 DIY mapping activity sheets were submitted.

    Currently, the Town is reaching out to special interest groups that may have been missed during Round 1. Round 2 groups include; Creston District Society for Community Living; Creston Valley Chamber of Commerce; Creston Valley Cycling Club; Creston Valley Seniors Association; Therapeutic Activation Program for Seniors (TAPS); Creston Valley Youth Network (CVYN); Kootenay Region Association for Community Living and Sustainable Kootenays. Round 2 groups will also include; BC Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure (MoTI), BC Transit, School District #8, RCMP, Creston Fire and Rescue, CP Rail and BC Ambulance.

    After all the comments are compiled from the first 2 rounds of engagement, a DRAFT report with recommendations will then be made available, here, on “Let’s Talk Creston”.  Expected in April 2022, this will initiate Round 3 engagement and allow the community, one last chance, to comment on the report recommendation and provide additional comments that may have been missed.

    Aloha69 asked over 2 years ago

    Creston’s cycling infrastructure is limited and the bike facilities that are available are generally not suitable for all ages and abilities. Even though the network is currently underdeveloped, the Town has strong policy direction in its 2017 Official Community Plan to develop and enhance its cycling infrastructure.

     The Multi Modal Transportation Plan will investigate four types of bike facilities, as follows:

     • Dedicated cycle lanes - these facilities would be on major roads (e.g., arterials, collectors) and intended for commuting from one end of town to the other. These roads provide the most direct route’s with the least gradient change;

    Enhanced shoulders - on major roads (such as Hwy 21) where lanes are not possible, and which are used primarily for travelling from community to community. It should be noted that Creston does not have jurisdiction over provincial highways like Hwy 3 (Canyon St / Northwest Blvd) and Hwy 21, but Creston will work with the BC Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure to include bike lanes and appropriate signage along these roads in any street re-design or improvements completed by the Ministry;

    Cycle lanes on secondary roads - intended more for recreational cycling and for connecting to public facilities such as the Creston & District Community Complex; and

    Shared streets - in residential areas characterized by wide streets (10.5m or greater), a less expensive alternative to a new sidewalk, that may be considered, is a “shared street”. On a “shared street,” parking is removed from one side of the street and replaced with a shared pedestrian/cycling lane.

  • Share Suggest a crosswalk at intersection of Railroad Blvd and Pine Street and Hwy 3. There is none across Hwy 3 at Murdock, or Cavell, at A&W or mall. In fact, none from the elevators to Ramada Inn. Those trying to walk to the mall or anywhere else east of Hwy, for exercise as well, cannot cross safely or legally. That penalizes all those in the area of all the residents of homes east of Hwy 21 from Erickson turnoff to Valley View and the new development there. We’d like to stay healthy! I have written letters about this in the past 2 or 3 years (twice I think) but have not heard back. Otherwise we are quite pleased with all that the Town has done to make Canyon Street and others, so attractive. And the Rec Center improvements are amazing. Thanks!

  • Share This is series of questions. 1. In new sub -divisions are provisions beingmade to have pass through walkways from street to street and from street to wild areas that are behind the houses? Why is this important? Modern design of subdivisions has circles, bays etc. that limit traffic by limiting the number of houses on a street. This has the effect of making walking from one place to another a much longer distance, pass throughs alleviate this. Also when a street borders on wild areas like goat mtn and the community forest pass throughs would allow the general public to access the community forest lands. 2. Are there plans for sidewalks from the Ramada to Erickson school? I know not all of this is in the town but it’s time to stop forcing people to walk on the side of the highway. on Facebook Share This is series of questions. 1.

    Thank you for your comments. Your first question ties very nicely to active transportation and these types of comments are needed to provide community direction on Creston’s Multi-modal Transportation Plan. Q1 will also be forwarded to Creston's Planning Department to ensure that future subdivision layout are considered with this in mind.  

    Having a sidewalk along Northwest Boulevard, between the Ramada and the Creston Mall, has long been a priority for Town Council but has been viewed as cost prohibitive with the added complexity of being adjacent to a provincial highway, not under the control of the Town.  Hopefully, Creston’s Multi-modal Transportation Plan will provide our community with the political justification necessary to lobby for improved pedestrian access along this busy corridor.  Thank you!
