Transitioning into the new study
In 2019, the public and stakeholders provided feedback before the new study begins to ensure the scope and scale are consistent with community needs. In June 2019, 108 people joined the project team at a listening and mapping session at Archwood Community Club and 384 participants complete the online survey and mapping tool.
- Online survey: Launched on March 2, 2017, it remained open until March 24, 2017. A total of 404 surveys were submitted to the City.
- Stakeholder interviews: Interviews were conducted by telephone from March 13, 2017 to March 31, 2017. A total of 29 telephone interviews were conducted with stakeholders.
Results from the 2019 engagement program confirmed the direction of the upcoming study and helped identify areas where improvements are needed/could be most impactful:
- Improved infrastructure for active transportation including bike lanes and streetscaping elements
- Preservation of the Happyland Park property and minimal impact in the vicinity of the Marion and Archibald Intersection
- Current and future traffic conditions around the proposed redevelopment of the former Canada Packers Lands
- Signal timing optimization and geometric review of roads for improvements to safety and traffic flow
- The Public Service will engage with CP Rail about trains crossing Marion east of Archibald to determine if there are opportunities to lessen the impact of train delays on road users
Moving on Marion Street’s public engagement components will be carried out in accordance with the feedback
