Partnering for safe communities
In response to residents’ concerns about speeding in Colonel Younger Estates, Strathcona County conducted a speed study in August, 2021.
The results indicate vehicle operating speeds are higher than expected, considering the speed limit. These results have been shared with Enforcement Services who will monitor the area as resources allow.
To help get a complete outlook on current conditions, Strathcona County invited residents to provide feedback about traffic in the neighbourhood through an online survey. The survey ran from mid-October to November 12, 2021.
- 31 per cent of households participated in the survey
- 69 per cent are concerned about traffic safety in the subdivision
- 50 per cent of respondents suggested adding signs, such as electronic driver feedback signs, or other educational signs
- 38 per cent of respondents indicated speed bumps could be an option
- 25 per cent of respondents feel that more police enforcement is required
Strathcona County sent residents a letter and updated the website with the survey results in December, 2021.
Resident input indicates there is not enough community support to make physical changes to the roadway to manage traffic concerns.
Speed study results have been shared with Enforcement Services, who will monitor the area as resources allow.
Residents can request temporary “Slow Down” or driver feedback signs to be placed in the neighbourhood through County Connect.
