Community Council Recommendations

The Toronto and East York Community Council recommends that:

 

1.  City Council authorize the installation of traffic control signals at the intersection of Boultbee Avenue and Jones Avenue.

 

2.  Subject to approval of Recommendation 1 above, City Council authorize the removal of the existing pedestrian crossover at Boultbee Avenue and Jones Avenue, coincident with the installation of traffic control signals at that intersection.

Origin

(May 8, 2017) Report from the Acting Director, Transportation Services, Toronto and East York District

Summary

As the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) operates a transit service on Jones Avenue, City Council approval of this report is required.

 

Transportation Services is requesting approval to deny the installation of traffic control signals at the intersection of Jones Avenue and Boultbee Avenue.  The technical justification for the installation of traffic control signals is not satisfied.  Therefore, the installation of traffic control signals at the intersection of Jones Avenue and Boultbee Avenue is not recommended.
