In October, Parksville Council was elected for a four-year term, 2022 to 2026. In early 2023, supported by an external consultant with experience in strategic planning, Council and senior staff worked together to establish a clear vision for Parksville’s future.

Mayor and Council are pleased to present the 2023-2026 strategic plan with six strategic focus areas:

Advocacy
Official Community Plan Review and Update
Vibrant and Livable Downtown
Water Use Planning and Management
Community Engagement
Investment in Recreation Amenities

We encourage you to review the strategic objectives detailed in the plan. The strategic plan will guide Council decision making, assist with resource allocation and establish priorities for key initiatives and projects. The plan will provide direction to staff and inform departmental work plans and operational levels of service.

Please email comments or questions to council@parksville.ca.

  • Share Hi, one of the objectives of “the strategic focus area 3; a vibrant and livable downtown” is 3.2 (Develop a plan for traffic calming for Highway 19A, downtown parking, and alternative transportation options to enhance pedestrian connectivity from downtown to the Parksville Community Park and improve the overall downtown user experience.) I was wondering if there has been any development about calming the traffic on Highway 19a? Changing the name from Highway to that of a street/avenue/boulevard such as Main Street and making it only for local traffic would help. Also, decreasing the speed limit to 40km/hr instead of 50 would also indicate that this is a proper city, not a Car Dealership Strip or a Highway to go somewhere else. Actually, almost nobody goes 50. It is more around 70 to 80 km on the Highway19a, which makes it very dangerous for pedestrians crossing. Adding camel bumps at both entrances, adding more traffic lights and changing the configuration of the sidewalk at the corner, to make them larger, could also help. If Parksville really wants to present itself as a “walkable” city, then the problem of this Highway, cutting the city in two, should be a priority.

    Please note, the City is in the process to create a new master transportation plan. Our progress to date and much more information may be viewed at this link https://letstalkparksville.ca/transportation-plan. We encourage you to participate in the upcoming engagement session, a drop-in open house, on March 5 followed by a second online survey in March for feedback. Traffic calming on Highway 19A is part of the conversation.

    Hello, there are no plans to widen Highway 19A in the vicinity of the Temple store. This was never in the budget nor was it promised. The City has begun the process to develop a transportation master plan and your input is important. The first drop-in open house will be held on November 8 with an online survey to follow.
