    • Saving Our Industrial Lands (S.O.I.L.) Initiative
      Background and History
    • River Road Study Area
    • Former DLC Landfills
    • “Bubble Zones”
    • Planning Principles
      Retain industrial land for industrial purposes
      Address landfill closure & height
      Aim for the highest, best use of lands to encourage jobs, economic growth & diversity
      Provide efficient, effective transportation & infrastructure
      Protect the environment & encourage “eco-industrial” development
    • What is Eco-Industrial Development?
      • An industrial area that makes more effective, efficient, and ecological use of resources
      • Materials, water, energy
      • Land, Infrastructure, Buildings
      • People
    • The Benefits
      • Protect industrial tax base
      • Maximize infrastructure investment
      • Attract new, progressive sectors and jobs
      • Meet economic, social, and ecological objectives
      • Create a sustainable community with industry not in spite of it
    • Employment Projections
      • Estimates provided by Metro Vancouver
    • Preliminary Study Findings
      River Road East Transportation Study
    • Current PM Capacity
      River Road heavily congested in the afternoon peak
    • 2013 PM Capacity
      Traffic volumes on River Road is expected to be reduced by approximately 50%
      Traffic redirected to SFPR alignment
      < 50%
      50% to 85%
      > 85%
    • Future Upgrades
      Area of Future development
      Consider improvements to municipal roads with SFPR at Sunbury & Tilbury (not shown) connections
      Internal traffic access can be staged with future development, recognizing rail crossings will be limited
    • Summary of Findings
      River Road is currently close to capacity during peak hours
      Traffic volumes on River Road (east of Buckingham) will be reduced by 50% from 2010 to 2013 PM peak
      Traffic volumes on River Road in 2031 will be lower than the existing traffic volumes
      • Internal access can be accommodated with future development
      • Improved connections with SFPR will be considered
