North Grenville council is looking for your thoughts on its new road safety policies.

The municipality is hosting a virtual meeting next week to provide information and get community input that will help shape its draft transportation policies.

In response to increasing traffic-related concerns raised by residents, the municipality is doing a comprehensive overview of its policies, so they can be fully updated.

The policies include a new Road Safety Strategy, a Goods Movement and Truck Route Policy and updating the municipalities’ Traffic Calming and Speed Limit Policies. 

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

It’s council’s hope that these policies will help to proactively address the municipality’s desire for an integrated transportation network.

Community members were also 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 11:59 p.m.

The meeting itself will be held on Wednesday, January 20, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

It 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.
