Residents likely recall the controvery this summer when speed humps went in on Bayswater that didn't meet the standard. They were too high, and drivers were complaining. The three southerly humps were investigated, and re-built to be a little smaller, which upset some residents since they weren't having as drastic an effect on speed. To help me get a handle on what effect the humps were having, my office asked staff to do some speed surveys, which was done in early August.

Enough is enough on infill construction woes

Kitchissippi residents likely need no reminding of the disruption that comes with infill. It is transforming our streets, and the daily reality of two, three, sometimes four infills going in at a time on some of our streets is exhausting.

Without pretending this is an exhaustive list, here’s some of the calls we’re likely to get in our office at least once or twice a week as residents assert to us that:
