Question Period and Announcements

..  

Parking on Hillcrest

Councillor Vagnini asked if they could address the situation on Hillcrest.

Tony Cecutti, General Manager of Growth and Infrastructure Services, stated that he spoke to the Councillor previously and further that staff are prepared to reevaluate the area given the recent changes and increased interest.

4-Way Stop at Montee Rouleau and St-Laurent

Councillor Dutrisac asked for a follow-up on the Civic Petition that was submitted in regards to a 4-way stop being installed at the intersection of Montee Rouleau and St-Laurent.

David Shelsted, Director of Roads and Transportation Services, stated that they do not have information to give an answer at this time, but they will review the previous measures taken and get updated traffic numbers in order to respond to the most recent petition.

Solar Speed Signs

Councillor Landry-Altmann asked for an update on the pilot program of solar speed signs on Barrydowne.

Joe Rocca, Traffic and Asset Management Supervisor, stated that they are in the process of compiling data including the enforcement of speed limits from the Greater Sudbury Police Services. It is ongoing and he hopes to provide information soon.

Randolph Road Short Cut

Councillor Vagnini asked if there is something they can do about people using Randolph Road as a short cut.

David Shelsted, Director of Roads and Transportation Services, stated that they could do an updated traffic study comparing the current information to the information previously collected prior to the traffic signals being installed and report back to the Committee.

Reconnecting MacKenzie and Leduc Street

Councillor Kirwan asked if the reconnection of MacKenzie and Leduc Street would require a formal motion or if it is a project that is already on the list of future unfunded work.

Tony Ceccutti, General Manager of Growth and Infrastructure Services, stated that the department responded to the petitioners and the overall opinion was based on the traffic flow in the area. Staff are not supporting or recommending that the connection occur for traffic reasons. This does not mean that their opinion may not change in the future should things change in the subdivision. They believe that if the connection occurred it would generate conflict in traffic between MacKenzie and the old Highway 69. They do not believe that the connection is justified based on the short delay for the area residents. If it was connected it would generate a straight line of traffic on a local street in a residential area.

Councillor Kirwan asked if a Notice of Motion needs to be brought forward by the Ward Councillor should the area residents not agree to the decision made by staff in response to a petition.

Tony Cecutti, General Manager of Growth and Infrastructure Services, stated that it would be appropriate for Councillors to bring forward these issues regarding traffic to the Operations Committee. If it is the will of the Committee to have a report brought forward then the Committee could choose to do so.

The following resolution direction was presented:

OP2017-11 Kirwan/Landry-Altmann: THAT the City of Greater Sudbury directs staff to prepare a report regarding the reconnection of MacKenzie Street to Leduc Street prior to the end of the year.
