Traffic calming reviews planned for Deyncourt, George, Delaware

traffic calming signA majority of residents living on Deyncourt, George, and Delaware support traffic calming measures on their streets.

In 2013, residents on these streets were asked to complete a survey. A minimum of 50% of residents who live on the area must support traffic calming measures for staff to undertake further studies.

The poll results by street are:
Deyncourt Dr.: 62% support
Delaware Ave: 56% support
George St: 51% support

As a result of meeting the resident poll requirement, staff will now undertake further study of each street in the Spring to determine if they meet technical warrant criteria for traffic calming (for example, minimum threshholds of speed or volume).

If the streets meet the technical warrant criteria, staff will meet with the public again to discuss potential traffic calming measures.

Residents will be notified by mail each step of the process, and invited to participate. I will also continue to provide updates in the newsletter and online.

A Better Burlington began in 2006 after my neighbours said they felt left out of city decisions, learning about them only after they’d been made.

As journalist for 22 years, I thought “I can do something about that” and a website and newsletter were born. They’ve taken various forms and names over the years, but the intent remains: To let you know what’s happening at City Hall before decisions are made, so you can influence outcomes for A Better Burlington.

The best decisions are made when elected representatives tap the wisdom of our community members, and welcome many different perspectives.This site allows residents to comment and debate with each other; our Commenting Guidelines established in 2016 aim to keep debate respectful.
