  1. Jwalk blitz

    We need a jwalk blitz. There are far more pedestrians breaking laws and in turn blaming drivers for their own actions! There needs to be a clamp down

    The wifi at Allandale Rec Centre never works when I am there. The staff said they even end up using their own data most of the time. The City of Barrie suggest I post my concerns here...

  3. More parking

    With winter parking rules starting up alot of people are at a loss especially those living in multi room rental housing and growing families (parents have a car each and same with their young adult spawn). With only parking for two cars in a driveway and 4 bedrooms for rent (or 3+ car owners) it makes it difficult in the winter to work with parking since there is no street parking. We should have local lots with free parking in residential areas to help out. These lots would also be beneficial in summer months to keep cars off the side…

  7. To make 7A last bus late

    I work till 11 pm everyday, i pay full for my bus services and since you guys stopped 3A and my bus from south 8B is always late recently, I have to uber home every night. That is the last bus and I am tired of not being able to use my bus pass and spend extra every single night. It’s ridiculous

  8. Install bleachers at holly rec center in the main vestibule for viewing pool area on otherside of glass

    The pool area is extremely hot most days, especially during winter months. There is tons of space on other side of glass where there is currently 3 tables. An indoor bleacher would add more places to sit and give parents the ability to watch kids in pool area without suffering the heat from the inside bleachers.

  9. Summer Road Luge Festival

    Because Barrie has different elevation levels, a yearly festival of street luge with starting point at the highest around the Municipal waste area could bring in numerous competitor. Look at the skate cross events sponsored by Red Bull.

  10. Give Mapleview priorty for Snow Clearing before 6am

    This week while going to work for 6am, Mapleview Dr E has not been cleared by 5:30/6am. From Highway 400 to Huronia is moderately traveled at this time and I believe Mapleview Dr E should be given priority.

  11. Install no stopping sign in front of Eastview between during 730-830 AM and 2:00 - 3:00 PM

    I have seen cars stop traffic on Grove street during high traffic to let off students. Students are often dropped off on the opposite side of the street and to dodge traffic to get to the school or block traffic to cross. Parents are blocking residential drive ways to drop off students or the students are blocking drives ways to cross the road. It is getting very dangerous. I do't understand why many schools in residential areas have this rule, except this one. No police or bylaw has been seen to control the problem. Perhaps making the area no-stopping would…

  12. Create a center for artists (guild) to gather and show Ceramic art work. There are many pottery artists in the area and there is no guild.

    There are so many potters and ceramic artists in the area but not guild or organization to promote their art in the Barrie/Simcoe area. Not talking gallery showings but a professional organization to grow art in the city and evolve. Similar to Toronto we could draw interests from locals or tourists by placing a educational/demo setup in a high traffic city property.

  13. Invests in a turf field and track. The only one is at the college there should be more do to the size of the city.

    Sports is huge for the youth and a couple turf fields across Barrie would encourage more physical activity amongst children. There is only one in Barrie and with the size of the city that is simply not enough. All the Barrie team organizations would benefit from turf fields as well as the community. A few turf fields across Barrie in local areas would be very beneficial.

  14. A crosswalk be placed at the stop sign on Sandringham and Consort Dr.

    A lot of children walk the pathway from Hewitt's Creek Public School which brings them out to the Stop sign on Sandringham and Consort Dr. I have seen many close calls there. I think installing a cross walk sign or white lines something to gain the attention of drivers is needed. Thank you for your time.

  15. Allow parking in front of Cement Square.

    Allow parking in front of Cement Square. Absolutely no reason, except Nov 11 to restrict it.

  16. Build a basketball court or pad at Archie Goodall Park (Wellington and Queen St.) There is plenty of green space available.

    A basketball court in our green space would encourage active play for our growing children and there is plenty of space available.

  17. 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
