Enhancing Road Safety in Kirkendall
The Ward 1 Office has initiated a crucial review of designated neighbourhoods, focusing on implementing Traffic Calming Initiatives at problematic locations. This comprehensive assessment aims to establish guidelines for safety enhancements, considering various factors such as road width, classification, surrounding land use, proximity to schools/playgrounds, access roads from arterials, on-street parking, and other pertinent considerations.
Councillor Wilson moved a motion authorizing and directing our staff to engage a consultant to address these objectives effectively. This consultant will conduct a thorough review of the Kirkendall neighbourhood. The ultimate goal is to compile a comprehensive Complete Streets report. This report will meticulously outline areas of concern and present actionable recommendations, aligning closely with the foundational principles of Vision Zero and Complete Streets.
This initiative aims to create a safer environment for all road users, fostering a community prioritising safety and inclusivity.
The first public consultation meeting is on December 11th at 7:00 PM in the Melrose Church Hall, 86 Homewood Ave - ENTER from the Stanley Ave side of the building.
Registration in advance is appreciated.
