Happy New Year Presidents, Board Members and Neighbours!
The past year continued to be very challenging. I’m looking forward to 2022 with energy and optimism.
With the limitations and restrictions in 2021, I wanted to ensure we had a variety of outdoor community events and our office continued to have community (virtual) meetings on a variety of issues; such as the concerns regarding traffic calming issues, development applications, ensuring the Ward gets its fair share with the “Slow Street” program and the “Slow Down” sign program, to name a few. The majority of the streets throughout the Ward have reduced speed limit signage reducing the speed to 40km.
You may recall, I asked for the reduced speed in sections along Lakeshore Road East last year and it has proven to be very successful. Another important initiative I have been working on for our community as an Advocate is against vehicle noise and speed.
The Lakeshore East Corridor Study, the Marina and the Dundas BRT study were reviewed and continue to be modified. These initiatives are critical to our Ward for safe and proper planning. I look forward to continuing to work together on the concerns and aspirations of the community. There will be a number of exciting initiatives in 2022 for our community and I look forward to sharing them with you.
Our community is our home! Shop Local!
Stephen Dasko, Councillor – Ward 1
