    Please note that the Traffic By-law includes the stipulation that no person shall park a vehicle “in front of or within 1.5 metres of the entrance to a public lane or private driveway…”.

    The consolidated Traffic By-law is available for download at www.barrie.ca/bylaws.

    Please report by-law violations directly to Enforcement Services by calling 705-739-4241 at the time of violation so an officer can attend.

  2. ATVs allowed on roads

    I think Barrie should allow ATVs on roads. You can currently ride dirt bikes and snowmobiles on the roads in Barrie if they are plated.

  3. Remove metal poles at dunlop st

    The new metal poles on Dunlop where the road narrows is extremely dangerous. There is NO WHERE for anyone to pull over for emergency vehicles and this causes major problems for curb side pickup as well as pickup and drop off of Uber passengers. They need to removed and some form of parking allowed on that stretch so the main road can not be obstructed

  4. 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

  5. Close Dunlop Street during the summer early fall months | Supporting downtown business during Covid summer months

    Covid 19 suggestion:
    Close Dunlop Street during the summer early fall months temporarily during Covid 19 and allow business to expand theirs patios further to meet social distancing requirements. Local Businesses should ensure that their online menus are up to date to allow customers to order, eliminating the hands on menu.

  6. Return washroom hours

    A lot of people are always trying to access the southshore washrooms after the lockdown with the new 5pm closure,

    We are now in phase 3 and would like to see hours return back to 9pm I've seen lots of people try to go in or I'll tell them its closed when i think they are headed to the washrooms.

    If it doesnt change we will see a lot more people decide to go behind the dumpsters.

  8. residential street parking - south Barrie

    I think that a driveway should be for cars/motorbikes but not for boats & trailer or multiple trailers or ATV's or snowblowers in the summertime. When these items take the place of the vehicle and the vehicle is parked on the street night and day, after day after week after month, then I think a permit should be served. Street parking should be the exception not the norm. Builders are creating shorter driveways these days and people are beginning to use their garages for storage not necessarily for car(s). Hence the side streets are filling up and it creates for…

  9. Dive park for scuba and freedivers located at Johnsons beach please!

    Hi you may see me out floating in my wetsuit I am taking up freediving and I do not wish to be killed by the careless boaters that you allow to operate in Kempenfelt Bay. So what I am proposing is a dedicated dive park so that boaters will be aware and stay out of the designated area. This would be beneficial as well because there are no active swim areas with over 30ft of depth something that is sought after as a diver. Thank you for your time.

  10. Put a stop sign at Dock and Cox mill road intersection

    We desperately need a stop sign at dock and coxmill road. It is very dangerous for people walking across dock when cars are flying down Coxmill and making a right hand turn down Dock road. With a school and old age home within a block we need to make this cross walk and street safe!

  12. Introduce the FOG Cup Program. A way to collect fats, oils and grease deterring people from pouring down the drain.

    How to use the FOG cup

    Pour cooled grease, fat or lard into this cup.
    
    Store the cup (with lid on) in your fridge or freezer.
    Let the FOG solidify and then place this cup (and lid) in your Green Bin for disposal.

    The cups and lids are compostable, BPI certified, and approved for use in the City’s Green Bin program. Residents are encouraged to use these cups to properly dispose of cooking FOG.

  14. Remote access to fitness classes for Stage 3 reopen

    Due to reduced class sizes and safety of all participants , is there a way to setup classes remotely for Zumba or Pumped up at East Bayfield Community Centre?This way more people can participate at home along with those at the gym, and will be much safer for everyone.

  15. Underwater SCUBA park

    Partner with the MacLaren or the Base Borden to create an underwater SCUBA park.

    Barrie is a popular destination for Scuba diving instruction, but there is not a lot in Kempenfelt Bay to keep certified divers here.

    I'm sure you would have an army of volunteers to scrub the artifacts to start the season.

  18. Annual Sunnidale Park Honey Festival

    SUNNIDALE Park is Barrie’s largest part. We should have a honey festival every summer where local farmers and producers can show off how they make honey and sell their products locally. It also shows support for bumblebees, who are endangered, and who are vital to our ecological balance.
