My office frequently hears from residents who reach out to express concern about safety at the intersections of Maitland Avenue, Glenmount Avenue and Erindale Drive. With several schools in the area, many pedestrians must make the trip across Maitland Avenue to get to class each day. Some of the key concerns that have been identified by local community members include speed, vehicle volume, red light running, aggressive driving, blocked pedestrian crossings, and the configuration of the intersections.
I have asked City staff to undertake pedestrian and traffic safety studies to review the current conditions and make recommendations for safety improvements.
City staff will be on-site at the intersection on Tuesday June 6th during morning and afternoon drop off and pick up times. Please feel free to say hello and take a couple moments to complete the survey. It is important that City staff hear directly from community members to better understand the concerns.
If you are unable to participate in the in-person survey, we’d still love to hear from you. Please visit: Maitland at Erindale/Glenmount Questionnaire (office.com) to submit your feedback.
I look forward to sharing the survey results and recommendations from City staff once they become available. Please consider registering for my email newsletter to stay informed by visiting: www.college-ward.ca.
