Gateway Signage

Council approved that Gateway Signage be implemented as one of the methods of posting speed limits. Gateway Signage is a new method of posting legal speed limits as outlined by the Ontario Highway Traffic Act. This method of signage requires an area speed limit sign at all entry points and exit points of a community or neighbourhood. This method designates all streets within the respective entry and exit points at the specified speed limit. The use of these types of signs offers great benefits to our Municipality including reduced speed, reduced costs and decreased roadway clutter.

Adoption of Transportation Master Plan and Commuter Cycling Plan

Council received and adopted the Transportation Master Plan and the Commuter Cycling Plan as official Planning documents for road and water/sewer upgrades for the Municipality of North Grenville. These documents are available on our website at www.northgrenville.ca/NGtmp.

Funding for Rideau-Sanders Triangle

Council has directed and supports staff to submit a joint application with the United Counties of Leeds & Grenville for funding through the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program (ICIP) Green Fund.
