You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Repaint the lines on roads.

    Repaint the lines on the roads in Barrie, especially mapleview, ESSA rd, FAIRVIEW rd. The lines are faded, making it hard to see what lane you are in.

  2. college

    Smoking on campus will be banned as of May 6th. This will cause housing values to drop in the neighbourhoods surrounding the institution due to garbage in these areas, cigarette butts everywhere and will also cause a safety concern for those who are forced to smoke off campus, as campus security is not required to respond to incidents off campus property. As the community has made a $5 million commitment to Georgian College's new "N" building, this is a slap in the face to Ward 1 Barrie residents.

  3. The bank at the corner of mulcaster and collier st. needs to have wheel chair parking in front of the bank not across the road .

    There are no wheel chair parking spots in front of the bank. ( Bank of Montreal ). This makes it very difficult for handycap customers. The first 2 spaces in front of the bank should be for wheel chair. Collier St and Mulcaster.
    There is one wheel chair spot across the road which makes no sense at all. Thank you

  6. Post signs re: boat launch procedure

    We are regular users of the boat launch at Lakeshore and Innisfil.

    There are no clear directions regarding:
    -which side to put boat in
    -which side to pull boat out
    -how to line up vehicles waiting to launch or pull out
    -what waiting boats should do (some tie up beside the launch and get their vehicle, others tie up in the launch, most line up in the water in their boats)
    -who goes first if there is a line up to launch and a line up in the water to pull out

    This is a major problem, causing "boat rage"…

  8. Offer free bus fare for 1st Nation people

    Card holders should ride the bus free, the driver should admit the person to ride at no cost. I remember the city would offer this is the past, it was a nice thought. Thank you!

  9. waste

    Think tax payers should not have to supply transportation for city workers to get from home to work and back. Would mean less vehicles to purchase save on maintenance and fuel. I had to drive my own car to work and back.

  11. Suspend recycling during Wind Watches or Warning

    To better manage recycling becoming trash during Wind Watches or Warnings littering homes and most importantly our forests and waterways. In an era of Spring into Clean, reactive is not enough. We need to be pro-active.

  12. Evening adult hockey opportuniteis

    During the fall winter season there were up to 6 different opportunities to play in the evening at different facilities. Wed evening at East Bayfield and Saturday evening at Allandale are very popular. Please don't stop them during the summer. The alternative day times are not suitable for most adults that work 8am-6pm M-F.

  13. Pot hole repair

    Pot hole repair needed in many areas of the city. Essa Rd. is quite bad. Suggestion to close roads and do a pot hole blitz similar to what Toronto is doing.

  14. Edgehill/Ferndale advances green

    With increased traffic on Ferndale drive, an advanced green turning left from Ferndale to Edgehill (westbound) would ensure safety of pedestrians and drivers. I believe there is already an advanced green to turn eastbound on a Edgehill, so makes sense to also have it for westbound traffic.

    Thanks for reading my suggestion

  15. pot holes

    when city workers are filling pot holes on the streets they should tamp the asphalt down as they are filling or it will not last. Try a little work it won't hurt you.

  16. Go after extremists

    The Barrie police has a swat team and we pay very heavy taxes towards them! In light of the shootings, the Barrie police need to seriously start cracking down on neo Nazi terrorist activities. Whether it is a yellow vest screaming, some anti abortionists or anti LGBQT “protesters” etc. Hate speech is not free speech and these groups have proven to be violent and are now threatening our democracy. Instead of targeting minorities and innocent people doing day to day things. They should be going after them!

  18. Make Barrie Transit free

    Cities in Europe are experimenting with free transit. They are finding a 125% increase in ridership and minimal tax increases. I think free transit would make Barrie a leading community. And it would be money well spent. Especially when you factor in the cost of installing presto and enforcing fares.
