TMP-27869 1  Discussion Item - ACCYCLING AND PEDESTRIAN SAFETY ON HURONIA ROAD Eric vanWesenbeeck cited a few notable safety concerns for cyclists and pedestrians on Huronia Road, between Little Avenue and Big Bay Point Road, and inquired if there were any remediations. Mr. vanWesenbeeck advised that the maximum posted speed limit through there is 60 km/h. He said that the average vehicular traffic speed through there is 70km/hr to 75km/hr. Brett Gratrix, Infrastructure Planning Engineer provided information that there are roads that have been identified for an environmental assessment update to see if there are opportunities for immediate interim improvements and this area of Huronia Road was not one of them. Mr. Gratrix said that he would pass along these concerns to the Operations Department. The Committee had further discussions on different ideas, such as lane width, interim improvements, and the lowering of the speed limit.   Not available Not available
TMP-27866 1  Discussion Item - ACPEDESTRIAN CROSSOVERS - MAPLEVIEW DRIVE AND BELL FARM ROAD Kelly Patterson-McGrath started the discussion with inquiries regarding the pedestrian crossovers at Bayview Drive and Bell Farm Road, asking by what means is the data collected, in what way are the locations chosen, and receiving feedback and public input. Councillor, K. Aylwin clarified that staff that lead the pilot were not in attendance and called on Brett Gratrix for input. Brett Gratrix indicated that an environmental assessment completed was the rational behind the Bell Farm Road location due to its sidewalks, intersection, and property constraints. Mr. Gratrix further indicated that, in looking at it more City-wide and the data collection, Traffic Services would be better suited for inquiries. Councillor, K. Aylwin noted that he will reach out to Traffic Services and report back to the Committee.   Not available Not available
TMP-27867 1  Discussion Item - ACWATERFRONT WAYFINDING PROJECT Councillor, K. Aylwin noted that staff were not in attendance to speak to this item, but called on Kevin Bradley, Manager of Parks and Forestry to provide input. Kevin Bradley advised that he had inquired with staff in the Economic and Creative Development Department if this item was in connection with a project they are currently working on regarding a type of wayfinding study and identifying routes to get to the waterfront from different entry points into the City. Mr. Bradley indicated that he had no updates to provide to the Committee. Kelly Patterson-McGrath clarified that this item was to add understanding of how it connects to the waterfront, how everything is connected, the signage being created and the way they are placed, the mapping, and how it is all being viewed. Members of the Committee and City staff had further discussions on wayfinding and QR Codes and provided input on this item.   Not available Not available
TMP-27868 1  Discussion Item - ACFEDERAL ACTIVE TRANSPORTATION FUND A. SEPARATED CYCLING LANES ON THE ANNE STREET BRIDGE B. SEPARATED CYCLING LANES ON THE ST. VINCENT STREET BRIDGE C. FUNDING TO PUSH UP THE COULTER STREET PEDESTRIAN CYCLING CROSSING OVER HIGHWAY 400 TO 3-5 YEARS Kelly Patterson-McGrath stated that she understood that there was funding that was expected to be available in July and was unsure if it had been released. Ms. Patterson-McGrath sought clarification if there was a specific project where the funding could be used within the items listed on the agenda. Brett Gratrix elucidated that the City’s standard practice is to review all grant funding opportunities as they come out and see if they can be applied to current projects, as opposed to introducing new projects. Mr. Gratrix clarified that applications for funding are not available, at this time.   Not available Not available
TMP-27871 1  Discussion Item - ACLINE PAINTING SIZING FOR CYCLING LANES - 100mm vs 200mm Kelly Patterson-McGrath started the discussion with asking how long the smaller lines last when compared with the bigger lines painted, in weight. It was noted that some of the smaller lines that were recently painted have already started to fade. The purpose of this item is to aspire for larger, thicker lines that have more weight and will last longer, rather than repainting the smaller lines often. Brett Gratrix provided the Committee with clarification on the reasoning for the 100mm versus the 200mm painted lines and the re-painting of the lines with waterborne paint yearly. The Committee asked questions regarding the education and outreach about the painted lines, provided input and possible solutions for the pavement line markings, as well as discussing and creating an education subcommittee that will be led by Kelly Patterson-McGrath. The discussion continued with the possibility of a summer student to help with active transportation initiatives at the City through the Canada Summer Jobs Grant Program.

TMP-27873 1  Discussion Item - ACCREATION OF ACTIVE TRANSPORTATION MAP Councillor, K. Aylwin shared a map created by The Collingwood Climate Action Team, showing rings to educate on Collingwood’s active transportation 15-minute walking or cycling to and from their downtown core. It was suggested that this kind of map was a good idea for the City in creating education on the location of and routes to the waterfront and creating different partnerships. Kevin Bradley shared the goals and objectives of the Wayfinding Project of the Economic and Creative Development Department with the Committee, indicating that it shows consultation with the BIA, whereas the intent of that project is what the map indicates. The Committee agreed to invite Robb MacDonald, Tourism Coordinator, Small Business Centre of the Economic and Creative Development Department to the November meeting, deferring this item. The Committee discussed this item further.   Not available Not available
