  1. Transit family pass should be good for 2 adults and 3 (or maybe more), children....

    I'm not sure, but would imagine many families these days have more than *just* two children...
    It would be very helpful if the Barrie Transit "family pass" actually covered 2 adults, and 3 (or more), children to potentially better reflect actual family structures. We pay an awful lot for what amounts to a somewhat useless transit service as it is....

  2. If Bell builds a big project near the TV station, I think it's very important that they be refused antennas.

    If Bell put antennas near the TV station they could create a media monopoly for themselves around this area. Their antennas would be high on a hill between the city and the air waves most of us want to receive from the south and from the CTV. What they plan for antennas is very important to settle before they build.

  3. Allow online bill payment of taxes/tickets and access to property tax receipts for income tax

    Most cities and municipalities allow you to pay online and check outstanding amounts. We should not have to travel to city hall to pay any fees or get receipts for taxes or mortgages. We can pay taxes from bank but don't get a receipt.

  4. Have a City of Barrie Day at the Blue Jays or Argos game

    The City of Barrie should have a special weekend day at a Blue Jays or Argos game in September or October. The Toronto teams could offer discounted tickets to the game. The Mayor could throw out the first pitch at the ball game. Citizens could travel on special GO Trains. This idea could also help promote our great city to the many fans in the GTA. We can also help boost the attendance for the Toronto teams and help built a sense of community for Barrie residents travelling with neighbours on the Go Train.

  5. Post wait times at the dump

    It would be amazing if dump wait times were posted online. It would reduce wait times and frustration. Even just on weekends. Or a second scale to get people through more quickly.

  6. Live camera feed for dump entrance

    I'd like to see a live camera feed facing the entrance to the dump so we can see what the size of the queue. I believe this will modulate the traffic coming into the dump especially during prime hours and provide a more pleasant experience when you know what to expect before making the trek.

  7. honoring the veterans/acknologing the memorial before each live event at Meridian Place

    The City & Mayor Lehman has done a marvellous job in design of the new Meridan Place, incorporating historical and modern themes.

    My suggestion would be, before each live event, the "performer" would address/give thanks to the memorial and point out that the statues in the back (of staging area) are why we can be here today enjoying this fine venue, in this great city-and country!

  8. sweep grass cuttings from sidewalks

    Grass Cuttings on Sidewalks:
    Residents and Public Works Employees should consider sweeping grass cuttings from sidewalks. These cuttings, especially if rained on, become dangerous paths to walk on as well as making our city look unkempt.

  10. Offer Bus rides to Canada’s Wonderland

    Reasoning onto why is cause Many other major cities in the GTA offer ride services to York Region Canada’s Wonderland and which we should offer the same for those who live in Barrie. It’ll be convient and more people would be able to enjoy the day at wonderland. For the cost of the trip should be $5/person. Also offer this during the season openings. It’ll be convient for those who can’t afford go transit and other city transit that come to Barrie

  11. Put a moratorium on demolition permits until all empty/deserted lots downtown, and on Bradford are occupied by thriving businesses

    All the demolition in 2018 seems backwards when there are still plenty of deserted and empty lots downtown and along Bradford St that are eyesores. Surely there is some way to incentivize new developments using a vacant lot instead of tearing something existing down?

  15. Installation of a gate into a existing fence into Allendale Elementary/city park

    Installation of a gate into a existing fence into Allendale Elementary/city park

    I live on Carol Rd with a growing family (6 month old/4.5 year old) and there are no sidewalks (good thing). We deal with high speed traffic (1 CHILD DEATH within the last 5 years), There is no winter maintenance on the entrances to the park from carol rd. Also demographics are changing rapidly in Allendale Area, with lots of young families.
    I have done the wrong thing and put a gate in last year (I know that was against the rules now)I have been asked to correct…
