Keeps His Eye on Speeders
Many of you have raised concerns with
speeding in our community and next month I will be hitting the streets to ensure
they are safe.
I recently purchased a speed gun from my
office budget and will be using it to monitor speeding in a variety of areas in
Stittsville this summer. I plan to be out on weekends with my office staff and
I was motivated to do this because several
residents have requested changes to speed limits, additions of traffic lights
and stop signs on a variety of streets in our community. Before any of these
changes are made, I feel it is important to gather my own information and decide
which areas require further enhancements to help prevent speeding.
One of my main priorities is to ensure our
community remains safe, in particular for the children. Please be assured this
project does not replace any police activity in our community, I am simply
hoping to see for myself where the problems truly are, raise awareness of the
issue and encourage people to practice safe driving. I invite any community
groups who would like to work with us to please contact my office and we will
arrange a time and date for your organization to join us.
Our community will have access to the speed
gun until September and then I will be donating it back to the City for their
use. Please see my column next week for further details about the launch of this
60 Sweetnam - Planning & Environment
Committee Meeting. The proponent has submitted an application to re-zone the
land from Local Commercial (CL) to Special Residential Type 4 (R4-X) with the
(X) representing additional permitted use of stacked townhomes. Planning and
Environment Committee will consider this application on May 8 at 9:30 a.m. in
the Champlain Room at City Hall (110 Laurier Avenue West). For more information,

meter supermarket building and one drive through. To submit comments by May 2 or

friends and family.
