Cycling modifications at Holland/Sherwood

In response to my request for a review of the Holland/Sherwood intersection following the bike/car collision this fall, staff are moving ahead with two modifications to hopefully reduce the risk of the "gapping"-type incident that occured there. The painted measure may move ahead soon if the weather cooperates, but the delineator will have to wait until spring; delineators have been removed from the roads for the winter to facilitate plowing. Here is staff's response.

Magee House: "a matter of when, not if"

This morning, I attended a verbal update by City staff on the status of the Magee House. While there is no hard-and-fast date to demolish that building, I was encouraged to hear staff say that it is “a matter of when, not if.”

As of today, the owner has failed to demonstrate a viable plan for either preserving the building or demolishing it. That deadline was set on the basis of an expert engineering opinion this summer that winter would be seriously compromise the building and create a public safety hazard.
