For the record (and so I can link to it on twitter) I'd like to bring your awareness to the 2011 report on Strachan Avenue cycling improvements that the Ward 19 group drafted and sent to Councillor Layton and City staff. The report was very warmly accepted by Layton as being easy to read and easy for him to support and propose in motions to PWIC and City Council. I recommend it as a template for future asks of the City.
This report is a strong reason why the City has now installed a northbound light at Strachan and Lakeshore to make cycling safer and remove the need for a two step crossing at the crosswalk.
I think this report also strongly influenced the installation of lights at East Liberty and Strachan even though we requested a four-way stop.
