Rathnally Area Residents' Association - Authorization of

The Development of a Neighbourhood Traffic

Management Plan (Midtown)

 The Toronto Community Council recommends the adoption of the following report (April 22, 1998) from the Director, Infrastructure Planning and Transportation Division, City Works Services:

 Purpose:

 To authorize the use of staff resources to assist the Rathnally Area Residents= Association traffic committee in developing a traffic management plan.

 Funding Sources, Financial Implications and Impact Statement:

 Not applicable.

 Recommendation:

 That Works and Emergency Services staff assist the Rathnally Area Residents= Association traffic committee in developing a neighbourhood traffic management plan for the area bounded by Avenue Road, the Canadian Pacific Railway, Poplar Plains Road and Poplar Plains Crescent.

 Comments:

 At the general meeting of the Rathnally Area Residents= Association, held on April 21, 1998, which was also attended by Midtown Councillors John Adams and Ila Bossons, as well as staff from Works and Emergency Services, a motion was passed by those present to form an area traffic committee and further, the motion made a request for staff assistance in developing a traffic management plan for the area bounded by Avenue Road, the Canadian Pacific Railway, Poplar Plains Road and Poplar Plains Crescent. Residents are concerned about the volume of traffic and parking issues, and about the potential traffic impacts of a new business (a garden centre) located on the south-east corner of MacPherson Avenue and Davenport Road/Poplar Plains Road. The Association traffic committee will require considerable staff resources to undertake traffic counts and analysis, provide technical advice on possible alternatives and develop plans and drawings. This approach has been established through the City=s Traffic Calming Policy (adopted by City Council at its May 30 and 31, 1994 meeting). Under the policy, authorization from the former City Services Committee was required to dedicate the use of staff resources for such an activity.
