PW30.5 - Vision Zero Road Safety Plan: Designation of Community Safety Zones around Elementary Schools

Decision Type:
ACTION
Status:
Amended
Wards:
All

Committee Recommendations

The Public Works and Infrastructure Committee recommends that:  

 

1.  City Council add Avenue Road between St. Clement's Avenue and Castlefield Avenue as a Community Safety Zone.

 

2.  City Council delete Wallasey Avenue between Weston Road and Strathburn Boulevard as a Community Safety Zone

 

3.  City Council add Strathburn Boulevard, between Wallasey Avenue and Lovilla Boulevard (St. Simon Catholic School) as a Community Safety Zone.

 

4.  City Council include in the Community Safety Zones the extended frontages of private elementary schools.

 

5.  City Council designate the locations listed in Attachment 1, as amended by Recommendations 1-4 above, as Community Safety Zones and amend City of Toronto Municipal Code Chapter 397, Community Safety Zones, accordingly.

Decision Advice and Other Information

The Public Works and Infrastructure Committee:

 

1. Requested the General Manager, Transportation Services to report back on:

 

a.  a proposal to accelerate the roll out and implementation of Community Safety Zones; and

 

b.  revisions to Attachment 1 to the report (May 29, 2018) from the General Manager, Transportation Services to include the extended frontages of additional schools in both the Public and Catholic French Language School Boards in Toronto.

Origin

(May 29, 2018) Report from the General Manager, Transportation Services

Summary

As a part of the Vision Zero Road Safety Plan, City Council recently lifted the moratorium on the creation of new Community Safety Zones. This is a critical step forward in the Vision Zero Road Safety Plan, to help reduce aggressive driving and speeding in areas within the City that have higher concentrations of school children.

 

Accordingly, this report seeks the approval from Council to amend the necessary by-laws to designate the extended frontages of the 754 kindergarten to grade 8 (K-8) schools within the City as Community Safety Zones. Doing so will make the Zones eligible for automated speed enforcement under the Province's Bill 65, Safer School Zones Act, 2017, once the applicable sections are proclaimed in force, while providing the immediate benefit of speeding fines being doubled in these key walking and biking routes to schools.

 

In addition, this report details the medium term plans for improving safety in the vicinity of schools.
