It’s irritating to dwell in a metropolis when council gained’t hearken to residents impacted by selections that make no sense. Relating to the plan for a community of separated bike lanes and one-way streets in downtown, I’ve met only one individual in my neighbourhood wanting this. When notified of the proposal, many residents stated no.
I used to be contacted by the surveyor to make preparations earlier than building. On listening to my disgruntled voice, the individual laughed, and stated nobody is joyful about this. Metropolis employees confided the identical. Chatting with a GO worker, making an attempt to determine how their buses would navigate this disaster, repeated the assertion that nobody likes this. A current letter to the editor additionally addressed the problems supply drivers will likely be dealing with.
Nothing was realized from the Westmount bike lane fiasco. Reasonably priced housing is required, however we’re going to spend thousands and thousands on bike lanes for a minority of motorbike lobbyists who really feel it’s vital. A greater answer for Joseph Avenue can be to maintain the pedestrian sidewalk alongside the residences, two-way site visitors, and make the business facet of the sidewalk a motorcycle path. Low-cost, efficient, and easy. The neighborhood isn’t towards biking. We’re uninterested in not being heard.
