The Municipality of North Grenville is inviting the public and key community stakeholders to review the proposed new transportation policies in response to traffic related concerns raised by residents. These policies include creating a new Road Safety Strategy, Truck Route Policy, and updating the existing Traffic Calming Policy and Speed Limit Policy.
Click on the links below to review the transportation policies.
The Road Safety Strategy will review existing road safety concerns and outline actions for improving road safety for all road users in the Municipality. As part of the Strategy, education programs will be developed to raise awareness of road safety issues.
The Truck Routes Policy will establish a network for efficient goods movement including priority routes in the Municipality. This will include a roadway signage strategy and a Goods Movement By-law.
The Traffic Calming Policy will help Municipal staff identify situations where traffic calming measures may be warranted, either in the design of new subdivisions and site plans or to address traffic intrusion and/or speeding issues on existing streets, and to select the most appropriate treatment to apply. The Policy will also describes measures to supplement the physical traffic calming treatments, such as education, message signs, neighbourhood traffic committees and police enforcement.
The Speed Limit Policy will aid Municipal staff in establishing consistent, enforceable, and safe speed limits within the municipality. Separate guidance will be provided for setting speed limits on urban and rural roads given their different characteristics and conditions. The policy will also include procedures for reviewing and screening public requests to address speeding.
To keep up-to-date on the development of these policies and to find out when opportunities to provide feedback on them are happening, be sure to check back on the website regularly. All updates will be posted on the website and the Municipality's Facebook and Twitter accounts.
