UNSAFE ROAD CROSSING AT ORIOLE PKWY AND COLLEGE VIEW
Please read and vote to support our proposed changes:
Dear Neighbours on Oriole Parkway and in Chaplin Estates,
As you may have seen, the crosswalk at Oriole Pkwy at College View Ave is not a
safe crossing for our children or ourselves. Time and time again, cars fly through
the crosswalk when the lights are flashing when pedestrians are in the crosswalk.
At our request, a police officer came to the area one morning this spring. He
pulled 2 cars over for speeding and 2 cars over for going through the lights when
pedestrians were waiting and the crosswalk lights were flashing. These
infractions were within a 30 min window on a random weekday morning.
The Oriole Park Association (OPA), represents residents in our area, has
established a Standing Committee of the OPA to address this important traffic
safety issue and to convince the city to remove the crosswalk and put a
permanent 3-way stop at Oriole Pkwy and College View Ave. This committee
includes Paul and Andrew Goldberg and Ann Tebo (residents on the east corners
of Oriole Pkwy and Anderson Ave).
On Tuesday, May 29 th we all met with City Councillor, Josh Matlow and he’s in
agreement that changing to a 3-way stop sign will make crossing Oriole Pkwy
much safer for residents. But to make this change happen, he needs the
community’s support. So, we are circulating this petition and asking you to
please voice your support by selecting Yes on this google form and including your
name and the street you live on: https://goo.gl/forms/YQQVYUPVhmfnu6qe2 .
If you have any questions or concerns please contact the OPA at firstname.lastname@example.org , or Ann Tebo at email@example.com .
We sincerely thank you for your support.
