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 oriole.safety@gmail.com , or Ann Tebo at annvh22@hotmail.com .

We sincerely thank you for your support.

David McMahon – President OPA

For Members of the Standing Committee of the Oriole Park Association
