Residents can help to guide the future of Victoria’s transportation network by completing a short survey and submitting comments that will be used to shape the City of Victoria’s forthcoming thoroughfare master plan (TMP).

Maggie_Bergeron“As our city continues to grow, we want to be sure we have a multimodal transportation network that adequately meets the community’s needs,” said Maggie Bergeron, planning administrator for Development Services. “We’d like for residents to let us know about the changes they’d like to see to our transportation system, including roadways and bicycle or pedestrian access.”

Residents can provide input by visiting, where they will be asked to complete a short survey and leave comments and suggestions on an interactive map. Residents can also share comments by calling 361-200-1995 and leaving a voicemail.

Residents’ comments and suggestions will be addressed during a virtual open house in late February. More information about the open house, as well as future opportunities for public involvement, will be provided as it becomes available. The final master plan is expected to be adopted in June 2021.
