Making a request:
To request a change to existing traffic-calming measures along a street, residents submit a petition to their Ward Councillor, Regional Councillor or Mayor to be presented at a Committee of the Whole meeting.
Petition must have 25% support or more of the households on that street, with a minimum number of 10 households interested in considering a change to traffic-calming measures.
After the request is made:
If directed by Council
Making a decision:
- A survey is distributed to the affected households (50% or more must respond to this survey for process to continue and 60% or more of responses should be positive). The process ends if there is not enough support.
- Review engineering concerns or safety factors if there is enough support for the changes.
Staff submit recommendations at a Committee of the Whole meeting. Council decides whether the request should be approved.
