  1. Red light cameras.

    As a daily walker I've witnessed an increase in vehicles running solid red lights over the last 6 months. Specifically Burton traffic at Burton and Millburn, and Lakeshore drive traffic at the Allendale GO entrance. I'm surprised I haven't heard reports of an increase in pedestrians being hit in the area near the lakeshore, given the increases in both pedestrian and vehicle traffic in this area since the beginning of covid lockdowns last year.

  2. Bring Presto to busses

    The goal of a good transit is to be affordable, frequent and easy to use, none of which are true for Barrie, despite it's size and rapid growth. While our city modernizes and grows, our transit remains antiquated, requiring now for people to buy scratch-off paper cards that easily get destroyed just from keeping in a wallet.

    A presto card will allow riding to be more convenient, allowing for an automatic renewal for monthly passes (no more waiting in line at the beginning of the month) and allows for an auto-loading feature for those who infrequently travel. Barrie also benefits…

  3. Downtown parking a hazard for the disabled

    Even if I park my car as close to the metal parking posts (eg. near Homestead’s Bakery), the width of the parking lane doesn’t afford me enough space to assemble or transfer into my manual wheelchair at my car door. You should see the angle I’m on, trying to safely transfer.
    I’m not sure what can be done at this point that isn’t cost prohibitive, but please do more for the disabled in any future developments please. Thank You 🙏

  4. Implement wheel bins for automated trash, organic and recycling.

    Coming from Quebec, where these bins are used exclusively. It is far more efficient, requiring less manual manipulation of trash,as well as easy to enforce limits on collection. Cleaner, easier storage for residents, and less risk of illegal dumping, or ripped torn bags during collection.

    These are already implemented with great success in several jurisdictions in Ontario, such as Toronto, and coming soon to the rest of simcoe, it only makes sense for Barrie to progress with rest of modern society as it pertains to waste management.

  6. Expand On-Street Parking - Franks Way

    I am a new homeowner here in Barrie, I now live on a relatively new street Franks Way just off of Burton in the South End. Between the stretch of 16 houses there is a small permitted area for on-street parking of 5 vehicles. Over the span of the several months living here this small area is CONSTANTLY full resulting in residents of this street and their guests parking in the "No Parking Area". Multiple neighbours have been issued tickets simply because their driveway is full and so is the very tiny area designated on the street itself.

    This designated…
