Neighbourhood traffic safety discussions to start in November

Strathcona County invites all interested residents to apply to participate in upcoming neighbourhood traffic safety focus group sessions.

Requests for residential enforcement, concerns at playgrounds and schools and inconsistent speed limits are a few of the common issues Strathcona County hears from residents. Feedback from the focus groups on these and other issues will help to finalize a Neighbourhood Traffic Safety Action Plan.

Traffic concerns in Strathcona County are addressed through the “Five E’s”: engineering, enforcement, education, evaluation and engagement. The Neighbourhood Traffic Safety Action Plan will define key actions to improve the safety and livability of Strathcona County’s residential areas while at the same time making the best use of municipal resources.

Focus groups sessions

 

  • Urban residents focus groups: November 1 and 2
  • Rural resident focus group: November 2
