    The amount of careless driving I’ve seen in the past few years is wild down in the Glen. Especially Wildwood/Confederation. What is being done to stop this? And with all these new builds how is that not going to make it worst?!?! I also believe that a major part of Glen Williams charm is the peace, quiet and nature we have - do how you plan to enforce it stays this way?

    The traffic Wildwood Road has become dangerous, due to 1) an increased amount of cars and trucks cutting through Wildwood Road as a shortcut during peak traffic, and 2) the increased speed of those vehicles using Wildwood Road. For residents/pedestrians this is creating dangerous conditions, especially for those residents who have to cross the road in order to access the sidewalk. Last year, speed reducing posts were installed. While these posts are not an ideal solution, they did provide some help in slowing down the traffic. Why have they been removed? Why haven’t there been other attempts in slowing down traffic such as speed bumps?

    I read below that flexible bollards will be installed on Confederation Street to help with traffic calming. While I appreciate this initiative, I believe the bollards pose a potential danger to pedestrians. Since pedestrians are forced to walk on the street, we rely on cars being able to make a wide, safe sweep around us and our dogs or children or strollers. Most drivers attempt this. What if there is an instance where a car, or truck, cannot swerve or give the pedestrians space because the of bollards in the middle of the street? I believe that in the absence of sidewalks, stop signs and speed humps are a far more safe addition to help with the speed/traffic issue. Please keep the safety of pedestrians in your decisions as the utmost priority.

    We have been complaining to the Town and the Police for many years to try and slow the traffic down on Confederation Street between John Street and Preston's Store. After all this time nothing has been done. When can we expect a solution? Putting up a sign that registers the speed of a vehicle, as has been done in the past, has no impact on the speeders.

    Hi, 

    The Transportation Department has indicated that the Town will continue with the deployment of Radar Message Boards on Confederation Street/Mountainview Road North and coordinate speed enforcement initiatives with the Halton Regional Police Service, as required. 

    Thank you,

    Are there plans to implement traffic calming measures on Confederation Street north of Preston's? We have no sidewalks and an increase in speeding and reckless driving. Why have you not implemented traffic calming measures similar to what has already been done on Wildwood Road and Prince Street?

    Hello, 

    The Town's Transportation Department has indicated that this year, the Town will implement flexible bollards to slow down traffic on Confederation Street between Wildwood Road and Bishop Court. This information is available in the 2021 Traffic Engineering Work Plan. 

    Thank you,

    Planning Team.

    Hi Melissa. How do we ensure that the GWSP be recognized and is adhered to as the guidelines and standards for all future developments rather than the current status of it being only recognized as a "suggestion" whereby it carries no weight and is over written by provincial standards.

    Fernanda Amaral asked 8 months ago

    Once the updated Glen Williams Secondary Plan is approved, all future development applications would be evaluated against the updated Secondary Plan. However, according to the Planning Act, property owners have the right to submit applications requesting to make changes to the in-effect policies. Any such application would be evaluated through the Development Review application process which includes a public consultation component and thorough review by Town staff and other agencies. Residents are encouraged to participate in the process and provide their comments and questions. For more information about the planning application process, please refer to the Province of Ontario’s Citizen’s Guide for land use planning: Plan Review and Approval Process.
