Heritage Hills traffic safety recommendations open house

Residents are invited to attend a follow-up open house to review traffic safety recommendations in Heritage Hills.

Strathcona County initiated a Community Traffic Safety Review for Heritage Hills in spring 2019 to address vehicle speed and pedestrian safety concerns in the neighbourhood. Nearly 200 residents provided input through the workshop or online survey in March.

Input from the survey and community workshop, combined with neighbourhood traffic speed, collision and volume data is helping shape the safety recommendations. The findings from the open house and survey will be used to finalize a traffic safety plan for Heritage Hills which will be presented to Council in the fall.

The open house provides residents the opportunity to provide input on potential options to improve road safety and traffic management in Heritage Hills.
