Mimico Neighbourhood Mobility Plan Meeting

On June 14 from 6:30pm – 8:30pm, we will be holding our first public meeting for the Mimico Neighbourhood Mobility Plan. Register for the meeting here.

In 2018, I moved a motion asking staff to undertake a comprehensive traffic study to address traffic safety concerns in the area. This followed years of making one-off safety improvements, and it became clear that we needed to look at the bigger picture, including enhancing safety around the three schools within the study area.

The Mimico Neighbourhood Mobility Plan will identify, prioritize and recommend short and long-term improvements to traffic operations and road design to support road safety for all modes of transportation including vulnerable road users (e.g. seniors, school children, people walking and cycling) in the Mimico study area.

The following areas of concern will be addressed:

  • traffic fatalities

  • cut-through traffic and excessive vehicular volume on local roads

  • excessive speeding on local roads

  • non-compliance with traffic regulations and signage

  • road and intersection designs that raise safety concerns
