Taking it to the streets - Abbotsford

We’ve listened to your ideas on how to improve your local streets and create better spaces for the community.

Based on community feedback in July 2018, we created a traffic management and place-making plan to help make Abbotsford safer and easier to walk and cycle.

Council will decide whether to adopt the recommended plan at its meeting on Tuesday 18 December, from 7pm at Fitzroy Town Hall. This meeting is open to the public and as a community member, you are welcome to attend and make a verbal submission.
