  2. Reduce speed zone on Adelaide St

    The current speed limit along Adelaide St, especially at the sharp corner in front of the townhouses (52 Adelaide St) is too fast. It should be reduced, speed limit signs posted AND more strictly enforced by police. Numerous people are seen driving what appears to be fast (current speed limit is too fast for the sharp turn) around the corner and having to drive on the wrong side of the street to "straighten the bend".
    Though people can park on the one side of the street along Adelaide including this corner, people do not park on the street along the…

  3. Speed reduction on Hanmer St. This has become an extremely busy street which I don't think was to carry the volume that it does.

    Hanmer St between St. Vincent and Bayfield has become extremely busy. I don't think it was meant to have the volume of traffic that it has. How about reducing speed limit and adding bike lane or making it a one way St. Lights were installed but they do nothing to reduce speed and volume instead people gun it to try and beat the light. There must be something that can be done, so resident can feel a little safer and enjoy a little more peace and quiet, thanks

    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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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

  9. 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.

  11. 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…

  12. 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.

    The City has launched a new interactive tool 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.

  14. 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!

  16. Spring Clean Up in Barrie-Volunteers should clean up outdoor areas.

    Now that many people are unemployed, volunteers can clean up areas around the city. Particularly around shopping areas as there is a lot of garbage. City council should get the message out to employers & citizens for this weekend.

  18. 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.
