  3. City’s Beach Workout and Calisthenics Designated Area

    All athletes will be able to promote a healthy lifestyle by using the first in the Simcoe County designated outdoors workout space. Pull up and push up bars is everything that is needed. It does not cost much to promote a healthier community and lifestyle. In other words cheap to build and maintain this equipment.

  4. 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…

  6. 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.

  9. Enforce the no parking in front of the schools on a more regular basis

    The school boards should provide a round about pickup within their parking lots to allow students a safer way of being picked up. Too many children are walking out between parked cars and into the path of oncoming traffic in order to enter their parents' vehicles on the driver's side.
    Perhaps doing away with a boulevard in front of the schools and turning into a loading zone would create a far safer environment and would also enable a better flow of traffic. This has been done in States and proven to be successful.

  12. 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.

  13. Close all stores by 3pm during covid19. People are not taking this crisis serious and are out all hours of the day.

    Even grocery stores need to close to restock and clean. People are not getting it. They are not staying home.

  14. waterfront over crowding

    just a thought ...with all the people coming up from outside of Barrie could you not call back workers that were let go due to covid and have them man the parking lots and only let Barrie resident in, or patrol the playgrounds that are being used.

  15. Buses should be every half hour.

    Buses should be every half hour or remain free until they fix this issue because there are still alot of people like myself that have to get to work. Why should we be forced to pay for Sunday service during the week? That's absolute ridiculousness

  16. 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?

  17. Rollerblading path. Would be great to have a place, path, oval, park etc. Need a new paved path.

    Rollerblading path. We need a nice new smooth place within the city to rollerblade. The lakeshore path is ok. But too many sections have not been maintain and are not suitable for rollerblading. Recommends include repaving the areas on the bike path that need serious maintenance (a lot) or pave the walking path from ******* to Johnson’s beach or possible circling one of the bigger parks with a paved path, like sunnidale. Thanks.

  19. Use Base Borden as a testing site for Covid 19

    Hello City of Barrie and Mayor’s Office:

    Has any thought been given to using Base Borden as a testing site for Covid 19?

    There has got to be an available facility/building/area that could be used for this purpose. Perhaps even 2 testing sites??
    I assume they have medical personnel that could be trained to do this testing.

    This site is not being utilized at a time when more testing is necessary and there are simply not enough sites available.

    What are the Mayor’s thoughts on this option?

    The City launched a new interactive tool earlier this year for residents to suggest locations in Barrie where they would like to see speed cushions installed: https://bit.ly/BarrieSpeedCushions

    Residents can use this application to submit a location, or “like” a location already submitted, for the City to consider putting a speed cushion in 2021. The City will collect submissions until November 13, 2020.

    The submissions received from the public will be shared with Members of Council in January 2021 to help councillors decide where speed bumps should be placed in each ward in 2021.

    Visit www.barrie.ca/traffic to learn more about the City’s traffic calming methods.
