As I mentioned in my previous newsletter, traffic and congestion have been front and centre throughout city planning’s ongoing Bayview design guidelines study.
Based on your feedback and the advice of senior city staff, I passed a successful motion directing city staff to establish a Bayview Avenue traffic working group. The working group complements city planning’s design guidelines study and focuses on traffic and congestion issues on Bayview between Lawrence and the 401 – including the traffic impacts of intensification.
More than 800 notices were mailed out for the kick off meeting in late June. City staff agreed to undertake a thorough analysis of this important stretch of Bayview and return to the table to continue the discussion. If you would like to get involved in the traffic working group or the design guidelines study just send me an email or give my office a call.
