Summary

This staff report is about a matter for which the Community Council has delegated authority from City Council to make a final decision.

 

In response to a request from Councillor Paul Ainslie and a neighbourhood petition, Transportation Services staff reviewed the need for traffic calming, specifically the installation of speed humps on Keeler Boulevard, between Neilson Road and David Drive.  Our assessment indicates the criteria as set out in the Traffic Calming Policy has not been satisfied.  Therefore, traffic calming should not be installed on the subject section of Keeler Boulevard.
