Traffic Studies and West Harbour Town Meeting

Hello West Harbour Residents

In our last newsletter we informed you that the Town would be doing further traffic studies in the summer months and some of you might have heard of a plan for a study at Burnet and Wilson Streets and an additional study at the intersection of Brant and John Streets, where residents see a need for four way stop signs. 

In the meantime, we have been advised that the Town will be holding a virtual meeting on June 14th to discuss traffic concerns and all West Harbour residents are invited to attend.   Please see details below.

Green Drive Webinar

Excerpt from the Mayor’s Newsletter:

The Halton Environment Network and the Small Change Fund has recently established the Green Drive Oakville project which is working to explore a possible a new community business that would employ local Oakville residents to install Electric Vehicle (EV) chargers and green driveways in homes within our community.
 
The Green Drive Oakville team is currently doing market research and need our help – they want to find out what Oakville residents think about EV chargers, electric cars (including ones to be made in Oakville), and removing old asphalt and concrete driveways and replacing them with permeable surfaces that reduce the strain put on the town’s stormwater system. 
 
Residents are invited to join the Green Drive webinar on Wednesday, June 2 at 12:30 pm and at 7:00 pm to learn more about this initiative and participate in their live survey. To register for the 12:30pm webinar, please click here. To register for the 7:00pm webinar, please click here.

Town Council Meeting tonight Re: Garden Drive Revera Development

Hello Residents
 This is a reminder of tonight’s public Council meeting that can be viewed on YouTube starting at 6:30 pm. 

youtube.com/TownofOakvilleTV

 Item #6 on the agenda will be the delegation from the Garden Drive Residents Association, who oppose the proposed Official Plan and Zoning By-law Amendment to 105, 115-159 Garden Drive.  This is the group that WHRA supports in their submission to Oakville Town Council to deny the application submitted by Revera/SmartCentres, to build a for profit retirement home on the property.

We hope you are able to view this Council meeting as this proposed project would have a big impact on our West Harbour community.

Thanks.

West Harbour Transportation Study

Hello WHRA members, 

In August of 2020, the Town of Oakville and a representative from Halton Police met with residents regarding concerns regarding traffic and parking concerns within the West Harbor neighborhood. Subsequently, the Town undertook a survey of traffic and parking in the areas surrounding Tannery Park, and along Brookfield Road. The survey was conducted in the Fall of 2020.  The Town of Oakville has now released a West Harbour Traffic Study Report.  

The report is attached.  It outlines the Town methodology, findings and recommendations. The recommendations do include the possibility of all way stops at Wilson and Burnet. The Town has scheduled a follow-up virtual meeting to discuss the study recommendations and next steps for Thursday, February 11 from 3:00 pm to 4:30 pm. If you would like to participate in this meeting, please use the following link: https://global.gotomeeting.com/join/776630125
