discussions I had with these residents, there was a strong concern with motorists speeding and
travelling the wrong way. Therefore, I would like to direct the appropriate staff to look into

1)the installation of speed bumps on Holland Park Avenue in order to slow the traffic down.
2)stop signs at Robina Avenue and Cedric Avenue where they intersect with Holland Park
3)road narrowing at intersections to stop cars from travelling the wrong way.

I require staff investigate the feasibility of these requests and report back directly to all the
property owners of Holland Park Avenue with their findings and copy me with their response.
