Following a substantial community effort and many years, Whistler has an updated Official Community Plan and Vision (OCP) that sets the course for the community into the future. Whistler Council adopted the OCP at its meeting June 23, 2020. The new vision and OCP builds on Whistler 2020, Whistler’s previous guiding policy document. Work is underway to align existing community performance indicators with the new vision and OCP. Updated 2019 data will be available in summer 2020.
Why monitor this
Residents require transportation to, from, around and within Whistler. While convenient, passenger vehicles tend to be the most resource intensive and costly mode of transportation, especially older and larger models. Options such as walking, biking or busing are less resource intensive alternatives.
What this measures
Personal cars and trucks in British Columbia are required to carry insurance when in use. This indicator reports on the number of non-commercial vehicles registered with insurance in Whistler.
