The BCSEA Kamloops Chapter held two consultation meetings concerning an update to Kamloops' Official Community Plan, called KAMPLAN. An official community plan is all about land use, with implications for transportation, housing, parks, and many other aspects of our lives. All of this relates to energy, of course. If your city is fairly dense with mixed-use neighbourhoods that include shops, schools and parks in addition to homes, you have the potential for people to walk or cycle near home. It's easier to build a good transit system in a city that doesn't have a lot of sprawl.
