  2. Keep Sunnidale Dog Park Open

    The Sunnidale Dog Park has been scheduled to close mid July 2019 to July 2020. There have been no postings about the closure, so everyone who depends on this DOLRA on a daily basis have not had any chance to make alternate arrangements.

    This park is the only one in Barrie with a fully fenced natural area. This point is important because when there are a large number of dogs in the facility, they can be separated by the vegetation; dogs at one end of the park can't see dogs at the other end, and owners have better control to…

  4. Offer a bus route to Tanger Outlet and throughout Simcoe County

    I suggest that Barrie transit to expand service into Innisfil for service to the Tanger Outlet Terminal. This would allow more passengers to travel to Innisfil as well Springwater township. Like how they do in Toronto with their buses going into York Region and Mississauga. It's just an idea, however this may benefit Simcoe county making it one whole transit system instead of municipality owned services.

  5. Bike corral or bike check

    When we have festivals there should be a large fenced-in corral where people can check their bikes for parking (like a coat check). It would encourage people to bike downtown without worry that there won’t be anywhere to park their bike or that it will get stolen.

  7. That all garbage and recycling be placed on the same side of the street, so the teuck only has to go down a street one time.

    It is double the mileage for a garbage truck to go down a street 2 times to collect the garbage. If everyone put their garbage on one side of the street, it would reduce mileage in half.

  8. Should accept cryptocurrency for taxes and other bills.

    Our company has an app, that allows the merchant, this case the city to accept payment in Bitcoin, Ethereum or KBC at no cost to the city, and will exchange it directly to cash so no risk of loss due to volatility nature of crypto.

  9. Quote your views

    Lets take the first initiative to make a world a better place of survival for future.
    Plastic is a major concern, If our president plans to make canada plastic free by 2021. its high time to adapt the harsh change.
    What could be a better start, Walmart? Let us ask walmart to start the first major breakthrough to eliminate plastic, Grab the aggregate data for the use of overall plastic and begin the initiatives and changes from vendors for bio plastic packaging products.
    There can be a lot of possibilities, Lets ask the view of our city to this drastic…

  10. Install free wifi downtown and lakeshore path:

    1) Something people value in order to keep connected with each other and the city/city businesses
    2) Great for businesses. Many other city's downtown business groups have supported such an idea
    3) Data collection - where, when and how people park/shop/eat/drink/play etc
    4) Digital marketing options

  11. Pedestrian bridge connecting Little/Fairview to Ardagh/Bryne over the 400

    1) There are a lot of people who live close to little/fairview which is quite far drive/bus to a grocery store.
    2) There is an opportunity to attract tourist business between these areas... many hotels on both sides and of the Mandarin is extremely popular.
    3) The new overpass south of here will not benefit pedestrians. Fairview, south of Little is not and will not be pedestrian friendly.
    4) The Essa rd interchange will be under construction and is still tricky for pedestrians/drivers.

  12. Create a four-way stop at Madelaine/Country Lane

    The intersection is increasingly busy going in all directions, and as the neighbourhood is large and people are often out walking, on bikes, etc., allowing cars to speed through the intersection on Madelaine (at 50 km/hour, if people are going the speed limit, which is rare) without stopping is incredibly dangerous. A four-way stop would limit the chances of an accident with pedestrians or other drivers.

  15. Remove fencing along the stormwater ponds in the City of Barrie

    These features should no longer be an eye sore within the community, but rather a feature that promotes public engagement with the natural environment. Although the primary function of a stormwater pond is to facilitate stormwater control in an urban center, it can also serve as a natural feature providing wetland function for our local wildlife. Remove the fencing to grant people and wildlife the opportunity to enjoy the value stormwater ponds have to offer.

  16. post signage at ******* Park located at 131-169 ******* Drive that warns people of the Poison Hemlock (Conium maculatum)

    Children have been picking wildflowers in this area, including the Poison Hemlock, which can lead to serious medical issues. It is growing abundantly adjacent to the park and along the roadside of ******* Drive.

  18. inproper release for downtown Barrie fish

    Not a huge problem. But nonetheless a problem. When people are When catching fish sometimes people are releasing them in the area that the City fills up during Summer Season. This kills the fish slowly. So should staff and security around there talk kindly to those fishing along downtown Barrie. I relocated 2 fish one day. It does not happen often. But its a small problem. Not a large one. Or should we no longer fill up that area.
