Sutherland residents push council for area traffic solutions

Some Rutherford Crescent residents are pushing city council for a solution to what they call “a recipe for tragedy,” claiming that the high density development on this Sutherlandstreet is creating a dangerous situation for children playing in the area.


They contend that a number of illegal suites are contributing to a problem caused by the large number of single-family homes that were built in the area just a few years ago. Often, cars line both sides of the street creating dangerous conditions in an area with a high population of children and a park that attracts them in droves.


Residents are calling for speed bumps, crosswalks, a reduction in the speed limit, an elimination of parking in front of the playground, and a clamp down on illegal suites.


Ward 1 councillor Darren Hill will present his ideas on solving the problem to council this evening.

Update: At the September 28 council meeting Ms. Elizabeth Cooney was heard and "expressed concerns regarding the speed of traffic and parking issue in the Rutherfor infill area and provided suggestions on how to help alleviate traffic congestion." It was moved by councillor Hill, and seconded by Councillor Paulsen that the matter "be referred to Administration," and that motion was carried.
