Missed the Leighland traffic calming meeting? Info here

City staff have completed a traffic review on Leighland Road and determined that Leighland, between Helena St. and Brant St., warrants the installation of traffic calming measures. Staff are proposing split speed humps on the road. Two will be installed (black dots on the map below),  with potential for a third (white dot). Before installing the third, staff will collect data for a year to determine whether the initial speed bumps have solved the problems of speeding and cut through traffic. If not, the third speed hump will be installed.

Expected installation is this fall.

Leighland Road Traffic Calming Plan

I was inspired to seek public office because I believe, like so many of you, “I can do something about that” on the issues we face. As councilor, my role is to take a stand on what’s best for residents and go to bat for it. Pushback is inevitable from those who don’t have the community’s interests at heart. I will stand with you and for you, to achieve the best interests of our city, without caving to unacceptable compromise in the name of consensus.

What's your take?
