  2. Prioritize Walkability Along Bradford Street

    As new developments sprout up along Bradford street, we have the opportunity to grow downtown and to encourage the kind of diversity and inclusivity that Barrie is so proud of.
    By requiring developers to create live edges along the street, with small-scale retail, and priority for pedestians and cyclists we can create room for small businesses to flourish and ensure that the people who live in the surrounding communities are included in barries future prosperity.

  3. Advertisement on Red signal

    Hello, Barrie.
    I think, it would be great if city of Barrie place a big LED screen on busy traffic intersection, to show small commercials could make good amount of money for municipality, to promote the various business sectors.

  4. Proof of address required for use of City recreational areas.

    I believe we have been having far too many visitors from Toronto and York Region making use of Barrie's outdoor recreational facilities.

    Aa a resident, I have avoided many of these locations due to overcrowding.

    Should Barrie residents who are not sick be forced to self isolate in order to allow out of towners to monopolize OUR amenities???

  7. Ban photo radar

    Photo radar is illegal. This is because the owner of a car is not always the driver. Is the car a fleet vehicle, a lease, what if it’s an actual emergency vehicle? Photo radar cannot tell the difference. This is why it cannot go against your points or your insurance. Instead those who are wealthy will continue to ignore it while those trying to get by will be wrongfully “fined”.

    It also disrupts traffic and causes a far more dangerous situation.

    Photo radar cannot tell the flow of traffic. If you’re going up hill or down or how many cars…

  8. that the City investigate an alternative way of treating waste

    On CBCNN on November 25, there was an article on an alternative way to handle waste. A Nova Scotia company turns trash into fuel.
    See: Sustane Technologies Inc., Chester, Nova Scotia.

    We'd have to build a bigger plant but the technology would save our landfill needs.

  9. Outdoor washrooms in the winter

    With Covid continuing, my friends and I want to meet outdoors throughout the winter. The one thing holding us back is the lack of washroom access in parks in winter. Even port-a-potties would be great! Please consider providing access to public outdoor washrooms so we can do our part to reduce the Covid curve in our area! Thanks!

    Thank you for participating in the City’s suggestion forum. Please note the washrooms that currently remain open year-round:

    The heated FAMILY washrooms at the Centennial Park building are open daily, 8am–5pm.

    Southshore Community Centre’s externally-accessible heated washroom (near Allandale Station Park and Military Heritage Park) is open daily, 8am–5pm.

    Hope this information is helpful!

  10. Increase the frequency on Barrie Transit’s Route 2

    The city has recently brought back the regular service of the Barrie Transit routes 1, 6, 8, and 100. However, they failed to see one bus that is either always busy, or is always late. 2B is late to the bus terminal almost every single day from 12pm- 5pm. I have to leave my house 30 minutes earlier to take another bus because I know if I try to take the 2B to work, I will be late. Also, it doesn’t help that once the bus reaches the terminal, even if it’s 20 minutes late, the bus driver still needs…

  12. Change the minimum distance for school buses.

    I have to walk 2.5 km to get to high school and I don't get a school bus. I need to pay for the city bus in the winter and now it doesn't even get me close enough to be on time for class. Also why are student fares so expensive? If the city was thinking of having a city bus free for the high school student bus kids WHY WASN'T IT FREE FOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS ALL ALONG. peace out uwu.

  16. Dog Park in North End Barrie

    I understand that the City of Barrie has TWO allocated parks for dogs, one at Mapleview and one at Sunnidale. Due to the lack of availability for a park closer to the north end, I am asking and hoping that counsel will bring forward a motion to provide at least TWO more dog parks for residents in the City of Barrie. Barrie is a huge city and it would be a great idea to service the HUGE dog population that resides within in that is safe for residents.

    Thank you!

  17. Indoor Skatepark in The Maple Grove area

    The kids in our area are growing up and the parks are boring to them. This school year we have seen school class broken windows. The school board has put up video cameras to try to catch them on camera. Let's try to keep these bored kids out of the criminal system and give them a chance to change. An indoor skatepark and if kids can't afford it, they can work for the their membership.

  18. resident should get access to online training on First Aid / CPR

    Looking at the tough time where our Covid19 warriors are giving their best while protecting lives - it becomes our responsibility to reduce the burden on the medical fraternity as much as it is possible. We all can help the each other and the medical fraternity by knowing First Aid and CPR. We can save people from reaching to the critical conditions if on-time emergency first-aid or CPR is given. I feel this course should be made available to the residents through online. They are so many providers of this course like - redcross, simplecpr, nationalcprfoundation, etc.

  19. Stop using the Barrie Advance to distribute the City of Barrie Calendar

    The Barrie Advance can not guarantee to the door delivery and for most of us only get it thrown on our driveways.
    I have had to stop delivery because I have someone clear the snow from my driveway and I do not want these haphazardly thrown newspapers wrecking their equipment.
    Can the city switch delivery methods? Hire a charity to deliver the calendars or use (I hate to say it) Canada Post.

  20. create outdoor bonfires in city parks this winter to facilitate outdoor distanced visiting.

    So many residents are using city parks for distanced outdoor visits. As the weather becomes colder, wouldn't it be great if the city would consider offering bonfires in a couple of parks (as it done at Snow Valley and Horseshoe Valley) so that people could continue this in spite of the increasing cold?
