Construction Policies Melissa is working again on gathering all the policies on construction as they relate to cycling. There are a lot of different locations for the policies and no one at City is fully aware of all of them.
Strachan Herb noticed that they had fixed the northbound lane so it no longer disappears. After reporting it to Cycling Unit staff and Councillor Layton's office. Win! (Now if they'll just fix the Strachan/Lakeshore intersection.)
Meetings with RAs
- Antony and Nico met with the TBCA. Since then we've had emails back and forth - they are supportive of the cycling projects. Need to follow up to see if they will follow through and sign letters of support for R/A, Harbord.
- Herb emailed with Patrisha of NNN. She is supportive and said she'd work on letter of support.
