As part of Barrie council’s strategic plan to create safer streets, it approved a motion to create an online survey to poll residents on road safety and speed changes in the city.
The purpose is to gain feedback from residents as to whether they are in favour of a city-wide reduction or solely a reduction in residential areas, along with further questions that may help identify specific streets of concern with respect to road safety and speeding.
The City wants to gain feedback about road safety in the community, and this is being done using the following methods:
• A map where residents can place a ‘pin’ to identify an area they think would benefit from a traffic calming measure (temporary speed cushion, radar board, etc.) or a speed reduction.
• A five-question survey that asks citizens to share their thoughts about speed limits, the effectiveness of traffic safety measures, and other road safety concerns.
Feedback received from this tool will be incorporated into a staff report later this fall that will consider future traffic calming initiatives, potential speed reductions and other road safety programs for Council’s consideration. The consultation will also help inform City staff of possible locations for temporary speed cushions in 2022.
