Introducing the Neighbourhood Led Action Plan Guide

We know you have lots of great ideas for improving your neighbourhood, but how do you get organized and work out your priorities? The City’s Neighbourhood Team has designed a guidebook to help you create your own resident-led action plan.

Traffic Calming
Register: trafficcalm.eventbrite.ca

Traffic calming creates livable streets by lowering the volume and speed of traffic. It may range from inexpensive and flexible measures like planters and paint markings, to higher cost permanent installations like speed humps, diverters and road closures. 

Join us for this exploration of when traffic calming is a good idea and learn about a variety of traffic calming measures that range from city-led permanent installations to resident-led temporary projects.
