  1. Enforce apartments and/or condos to take action to restrict pigeon infestation\

    Enforce Property managers of apartment building, condos, and condominiums to take necessary action to restrict pigeon infestation. Pigeons are roosting on roofs of these buildings and their waste is ending up on balconies. Pigeon waste is a health hazard and personal property has been destroyed. People living in these buildings haven't been able to enjoy their balconies because of this waste issue. People have been told that we should keep our balconies clean and normally wouldn't be a problem. With the pigeon issue though keeping balconies clean has become an impossible task.

  2. This suggestion is for the residents of Barrie - the City just has to continue to promote the importance of buying locally

    In talking to people about the disastrous impacts of buying consumers goods from Amazon rather than supporting local retailers, I do not believe the vast majority of people have any idea of how catastrophic the long term impact of their shopping habits might be.
    We need to buy local whenever possible and especially, we need to support our downtown retailers.
    Here’s why I refrain from buying from Amazon-
    Jeff Bezos, head of Amazon is one of the richest men in the world. Not only did he not pay any taxes, whatsoever, last year, but through all kinds of tax loop…

  4. Create pedestrian walking trails in Lovers Creek Ravine, Chalmers Park and D'Ambrosio Park.

    A new trail through the ravine would better protect the natural area by keeping pedestrians on the trail system. Further, it would better connect the neighborhoods on wither side of the ravine, improving walkability and resident well being.

  5. Minet's Point beach washroom and garbage pick-up

    Could we not spend a few thousand dollars to spruce up the washroom at Minets Point? Paint, new sinks and toilets would go a long way. This is a well used park especially for families. If we are charging for parking - which is actually a good idea - we should be providing reasonable facilities.

    If garbage pickup cannot be increased could we have more containers to avoid the overflow which happens on a regular basis during the summer months.

    Anticipating a great beach season, thanks.

  9. Install more advance green lights at intersections, and restrict left turns to advance green cycles

    Install more advance green lights at intersections, and restrict left turns to advance green cycles. Currently on many arterial roads throughout the city the only opportunity to turn left is on the yellow light. This creates dangerous situations as many vehicles try to "race" the yellow lights and thus conflict with left turning traffic. It is very common to see both near misses and accidents caused by this conflict. By shifting left turning traffic to advance greens this conflict would be greatly reduced resulting in decreased congestion as well as improved road safety.

  10. 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…

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  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
