Development of a sustainable mobility plan

Plan de mobilité durable

In a perpetually moving world, getting around fast, safely and comfortably has become a generalized need for people. However, all this movement has an impact on residents’ living environment. 

Aware that this represents an important issue for the community, in the next few months the Ville de Saint-Lambert will be embarking on a planning and consultation process aimed ultimately at adopting its very first sustainable mobility plan (SMP).  

Once completed, the Sustainable Mobility Plan will consist of a planning tool for efficiently managing the spatial organization of travel on Saint-Lambert territory. Its implementation will help improve all types of travel and promote active transportation in particular, while ensuring peace and quiet in residential neighbourhoods as well as public road safety. It will also address the requests made by many citizens who experience transportation problems on a daily basis. 

Aim of the process

This collaborative and structured process will draw up a profile of local travel habits and patterns, including all modes of transportation. In addition, it will identify various intervention strategies for improving citizens’ quality of life and conditions for the movement of goods and people within our city. 

Steps in the process

This planning tool will essentially be developed in two main steps: 

Step 1: Drawing up a profile and making a diagnosis (January to October 2020)

This step will involve painting a picture of current mobility on Saint-Lambert territory in order to pinpoint the related problems, issues and constraints: active and public modes of transportation, alternative modes to single-occupant cars, safety, quality of life, and the road network.

This participatory process includes the following consultation activities: 

  • online survey inviting citizens to share information about their travel habits and needs and to identify mobility problems in Saint-Lambert; 
  • workshop with the City’s key actors to identify mobility problems and issues in Saint-Lambert; and
  • workshops with students at one elementary school and one high school in our city to identify mobility problems and issues for students in Saint-Lambert. 

Diagnostic profile

During this step, a diagnostic profile (in French) was drawn up taking into account the different information collected. By way of information, you can consult the results of the survey (in French). 

As the diagnosis was complex and very dry, we have also produced an abridged version (in French). 

During step 2, we will be consulting you with a view to developing the action plan, but also to have you validate the diagnosis to ensure that it is truly representative of the actual situation. To prepare for the workshops, we invite you to consult the following video :  

Step 2: Developing an 2035 action plan (August to December 2020)

This step will define projects, strategies and measures to put in place in order to address the problems and issues identified in the profile and diagnosis.

A public presentation will inform citizens of the resulting Sustainable Mobility Plan and the actions identified for addressing these problems and needs. The aim of the planned consultations will be to identify and prioritize the interventions designed to address the City’s constraints and issues. 

This participatory process includes the following consultation activities:

  • workshops with the population and key partners 
  • workshops with elementary and secondary school students 
  • online consultation form inviting citizens to validate the diagnosis and identify possible actions
  • tabling of a brief on the major issues 

Upcoming consultations

We will hold public consultations to develop the 2035 action plan. The workshops will take place via videoconferencing during the weeks of November 23 and November 30. Each workshop will address one of the following topics:

  • Road network, speed and parking
  • Active mobility and safe local travel
  • Public transit and alternatives to one-person cars 

The Phase 2 consultations ended on December 4, 2020. Thank you for your interest!

Step 3: Production of the Sustainable Mobility Plan

In this step, the intervention plan will be drafted in light of the public consultations, and the Sustainable Mobility Plan will be completed. You will then be invited to participate in a presentation where you can learn all about the plan.
