Neighbourhood traffic safety is an important issue in our community. I am happy to report that both Willowgrove and Silverspring have had full traffic reviews with the recommendations being implemented this year. Erindale and Arbor Creek are currently being reviewed and if you’re interested in more details for those neighbourhoods, the next review meeting is being held on Tuesday, September 19th from 7pm to 9pm at Father Robinson School. These reviews help improve pedestrian safety and traffic flow in our community.
I’m sure you’ve noticed and I am pleased to report that the McOrmond and College overpass is under construction. This is a priority project that I have been advocating for during my time on Council, so it is great to see shovels in the ground!
You’re invited to join Zach and your Ward 10 neighbours for a free BBQ. Come celebrate our great community with food, entertainment, and lots of family fun.

This past spring, the Fire Department completed a review of fire bylaws in our City, including regulations on backyard fire pits. I heard from many residents who thought that this meant Council was planning to ban backyard fire pits, but this is not the case. While there are occasionally issues with people irresponsibly using fire pits, the vast majority of residents enjoy fire pits safely and respectfully. I don’t think it makes sense to punish everyone for the actions of the few. While Council might suggest common sense changes to the bylaw, I don’t think we need to ban a great backya
This important project began a year and a half ago and it still remains on time and on budget with everything scheduled to be completed by October 2018!
On the North Bridge, the structural steel for the west half of the bridge is in place and work is ongoing on the final in-river pier. Once the final pier is finished, the structural steel for the east half of the bridge will be installed. Crews are also installing deck panels on the west half of the bridge.
