Council Requests Input from Community on New Road Safety Policies

January 9, 2021

NORTH GRENVILLE, ON – The Municipality of North Grenville is hosting a virtual community meeting on January 20, 2021, from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm to provide information and gather community input to help shape its draft transportation policies.

With direction from Council, the Municipality is doing a comprehensive overview of its transportation policies in response to increasing traffic-related concerns raised by residents – so that they can be fully updated.

These policies include creating a new Road Safety Strategy, a Goods Movement and Truck Route Policy, and updating the existing Traffic Calming Policy and Speed Limit Policy.

“We strongly encourage residents to participate in the virtual meeting to help guide the discussion on road safety in our community,” said Mayor Nancy Peckford. “Your feedback is crucial to developing stronger policies that will help us significantly improve road safety throughout North Grenville. We need your input!”

The meeting will be held through Zoom and will include options for participants to connect online or by phone, depending on what they are most comfortable with. Participants are asked to pre-register for the meeting online via the website at: www.northgrenville.ca/roadsafety

Community members were asked to provide feedback through an online survey in the fall.

“If you are not able to attend the virtual meeting, there will still be an opportunity to comment on the draft transportation policies,” added Councillor John Barclay and Public Works Liaison.

Comments will be directed to a short online feedback form until Wednesday, February 3, 2021 at 11:59pm.

Guided by the Municipality of North Grenville’s Transportation Master Plan, completed in 2019, these policies will help to proactively address the Municipality’s desire for an integrated transportation network.
