City facilities including City Hall are closed to the public. Many services will remain available, but changes have been made to reduce the need for people to leave their home to access services.
As part of our commitment to making streets accessible and safe for all, the City uses a variety of traffic calming measures to reduce dangerous driving and allow residents to enjoy their neighbourhoods.
In addition to these measures, the City launched a new area speed limits program, which aims to make our streets safer for all road users by lowering speed limits on roads with high pedestrian and cycling usage.
Examples of traffic calming measures include:
The City’s goal is to ensure all residential roads function as intended within a neighbourhood, and that all users in the neighbourhood feel safe. Our traffic calming practices and procedures are based on over 25 years of experience in engineering roads and educating residents.
To qualify for traffic calming requires passing a number of steps designed to filter out normal traffic and ensure significant community support.
