IPD/Byron counts

A couple of weeks ago, I undertook to try crowdsourcing a traffic analysis of the interesction of Island Park and Byron, working with Kevin O'Donnell on some new tools. I'm pleased enough with the results to try it again, and now Kevin is setting up film I took of the Harmer/Wellington intersection as a second attempt.

Let's go REDBLACKS - upping the Grey Cup ante

It's hard not to get caught up in Grey Cup fever! I've been a season ticket holder to the Redblacks (and Renegades) for three seasons now, south side, upper deck. This Sunday's game is already more excitement than we can ask for - what a Cinderalla season. But to ramp it up a notch, I and Edmonton city councillor Scott McKeen (@scott_mckeen) are putting a little something-something on the line:

Reid Park consultant recommendations

For months now, my consultant Wesley Petite has been holding workshops and receiving feedback on how we can use money set aside for the improvement of Reid Park. To quickly re-cap, when I came into office, I began to hear about a desire in the community to re-visit a prevous proposal for building a new field house in the park. In consultation with residents, I put the proposal on hold, and launched the current process.

We need your help! Island Park / Byron traffic analysis

Traffic problems that result in unsafe pedestrian and cycling environments are endemic, unfortunately, across the ward. We deal in the office daily with one-offs, neighbourhood level issues, and try as much as we have time to deal with systemic challenges. One intersection that's frequently flagged for me is the Island Park/Byron junction. Anecdotally, we hear often about red-light running, cars blocking the intersection, curb-jumping and more.

New tool will help residents who wonder: Where Is My Plow?

There is a new tool on ottawa.ca this winter that will help Ottawa residents know when a City plow will clear their snow-covered residential street.

Called Where Is My Plow, the web tool allows you to enter your home address and find  the estimated time when your residential street will be plowed during a major storm. Times are estimated using real-time GPS information from the snow plow fleet. The tool will work on any phone, mobile device, laptop or desktop computer.
