Queen Street Traffic Study Limits

Queen Street Traffic Study Limits

Queen Street businesses will get the traffic study they want, but they’ll have to put up with confusing parking rules until it’s complete in January. On Monday, Coun. Rick Cowsill called for a traffic and safety review of Queen Street, between Cooper Street and Guelph Avenue. He said business owners are complaining to him after parking was banned from the north side of the street over the summer. It’s created “some major problems” along the narrow section of Queen Street in the heart of the one-time village, he said. “It seems that speeding has increased and a lot of people are driving to the core area, can’t find a parking spot and are taking off.”

Why would you ever remove on-street parking? Isn’t that one of the first things they teach in streetscaping and urban design courses?
