Before and After1King Street Bicycle Lanes cont.

    TRCA sent the attached letter to the Traffic and Parking Board on Sunday, February 23.  TRCA continues to oppose the
    bike lanes proposed in the "King Street Bicycle Lanes and Pedestrian Improvement Plan" ("Concept 2").
    The Traffic and Parking Board rejected the City's plan again at their public hearing on February 24.  The Board asked the
    citizens of the neighborhood along with the bikers to come up with a plan of their own. A group of King Street residents and
    TRCA are working to create another option which will include a safe set of solutions for the bikers as well as the
    neighborhood. This issue will go before City Council on March 15, 2014 at a meeting commencing at 9:30 a.m. 
    There will also be a public comment period at that hearing.  If you feel strongly about this issue, you should attend
    and sign up to speak.
    A petition is being circulated by the King Street Coalition for Safety (comprised predominantly of residents who live on or
    near the affected King Street area) regarding the installation of bike lanes on King Street.  You can access it here.




    Before and After1King Street Bicycle Lanes

    The Traffic and Parking Board held a public meeting Monday, November 25 at City Hall Council Chambers
    in which the King Street Bicycle Lanes were on the agenda. TRCA's vice-president, Lisa Beyer Scanlon, shared the Association's correspondence concerning the city's proposal for bike lanes and pedestrian safety measures on King
    Street with the Board. Following the comments from the community, the Traffic and Parking Board recommended
    that the city go back to the drawing board with the proposal, aside from the pedestrian safety measures.
    On Friday, December 20, King Street residents received a letter from T&ES Director, Rich Baier. T&ES will be
    moving forward with a project to implement the City’s Complete Streets Policy and Transportation Master Plan,
    installing bike lanes on King Street between West Cedar Street and Highland Place next year. 
    TRCA responded to Rich Baier's letter on Sunday, January 5. Click here to view TRCA's response. TRCA has a regularly scheduled Executive Committee meeting on January 15 at 8:00 pm.  The bike lanes will be on the agenda. 


    TRCA has been informed that Woodbine filed a new concept plan with the City over the holidays,
    a copy of which can be found here.  We are reviewing the revised plan; however, under any
    circumstances, TRCA has taken the position that we oppose any plan that would require a change
    in zoning.  We will keep you apprised.
    Please find the City staff comments on the latest submission for the Woodbine Expansion
    project here.
