    Hi! Sorry I was not able to make it on time for today's virtual presentation. I have a question regarding Springhill Gardens in King City. I live on Warren Road & am wondering if sidewalks are being considered in my neighborhood. I know foot traffic is increasing but I am not in favour of sidewalks where we have never had them because much of the beauty of our neighborhood is the trees. I would not like to lose any that are close to the street. Thank you!

    An alternative sidewalk (on-road) is proposed on the north side of Warren Rd in the medium term (6-10 years) to connect from the existing sidewalk on Burton Grove to the existing sidewalk on Warren Rd at Bennet Dr. It will be a reallocation of road space to provide a continuous dedicated pedestrian route to the King City GO Station.

    The new speed bumps on Banner lane are too high. No matter what speed I travel on a couple of them, my car bottoms out and gets scraped. I can’t believe they are according to proper code (if that exists) as they will only slow and impede fire trucks from getting to our homes, and will probably wreak havoc in the winter with plows and vehicles getting stuck on them. Something needs to be done about this!

    In October, the Banner Lane speed humps have been modified to the national standard design, which should address your concerns.

    Will a sidewalk be provided on the north side of King Road all the way to the Heritage & Cultural Centre? The residents who live near the HCC/museum are really cut off from the core of King City as it is dangerous to walk on the side of the road.

    Debbie S asked 6 months ago

    Sidewalks are currently being built from King Municipal Centre to Dufferin Street. The segment from Jane to King Municipal Centre will be built as part of development when it proceeds.

    Pave the bike paths. A layer of gravel is added in the Summer and it just makes things mushy to ride as the gravel isn’t compacted down. In our community since I’ve lived here it’s speeding speeding and more speeding....everyone has complained, it’s now a neighbourhood conversation piece. It’s not safe, and we’ve all complained....install speed humps (not speed bumps) as Hillfarm has installed The path at Taska park ends behind the soccer net, and doesn’t connect to the path that starts at Hillfarm and leads to the park ...it’s difficult to ride the terrain and distance all the way over the soccer field to get to the park.... To cross to the south side of king road, from the sidewalk exiting Greenhill Lane, you can only cross from one side...and then there’s no sidewalk or safe walking, or riding space to walk Eestbom King road to the recreation Center....or the Daisy Mart, or King learning Center etc etc There’s no room for biking on 27, or King Road and there’s lots of bikers....the roads are already inadequate for the amount of cars commuting out of Nobleton, add in the bikers riding for sport on the roads and it’s just a safety hazard

    Thank you for your feedback. There is a separate traffic calming study and we will pass on your comments related to speeding. 

    We will include these Nobleton connections and trail surface comments in our review. The trail connection from Tasca Park to the east will be completed as part of park upgrades in 2022.

    The paved shoulders for cycling on Regional Roads such as King Road and Hwy 27 are outside the scope of this project, as they are under the jurisdiction of York Region. However, we will pass on this feedback to the Region.

    Are there any plans for creating a guard rail or barrier to protect pedestrians and cyclists who want to use the sidewalk along King Road between Burns Avenue and Keele Street? we feel unsafe using the sidewalk that is one foot away from the traffic-laden king road (and how fast those cars travel too!) Please consider this protection as you streetscape.

    Annad asked 7 months ago

    Thank you for your feedback. The current streetscaping project will improve the section from Burns Ave to Keele Street with a multi-use path and other improvements.

    Has the possibility of closing one lane in each direction along King Rd from Dufferin to Jane during the summer months for cycling been considered?

    Fausto Rossetto asked 7 months ago

    King Road (roadway portion) is under the jurisdiction of York Region, not King the Township. We will put this idea forward to York Region. 

    There is a Township project currently underway, in partnership with the Region, to improve the streetscaping on King Road. This includes sidewalk replacement, a multi-use path, tree plantings, flower poles, street furniture and lighting.

    Will there be a sidewalk along Highway 27 from Diana Road, north to connect with the Tribute Homes community? Or at least something to make it safer to connect to Nobleton central without using a car ie. barriers of some type

    ddiluca asked 8 months ago

    Thank you for your feedback. We will include Hwy 27 from Diana Road to Nobleton in our review.

    Will these offroad trails be dirt trails or gravel trail. By dirt trails I mean like a trail system with difficulty, and features like berms, jumps, etc.

    Mihir asked 8 months ago

    Trail surface will be determined during the design phase and is beyond the scope of our study. In general, the trails identified are intended to be multi-use and not exclusively for mountain biking.

    Can someone look at Rebellion Way north of the mailboxes/statue in Lloydtown? It’s a very dangerous stretch of road for those walking.

    Outramwe asked 8 months ago

    Thank you for your feedback. We will include Rebellion Way in our review.

    I noticed in the survey that no mention is made regarding adding public washrooms anywhere. Surely the COVID-19 crisis is showing us that we cannot rely on retail businesses to provide washroom access any longer. I have seen such washrooms that are constructed entirely of metal, are indestructible and are relatively inexpensive. What about composting toilets? What about providing them for much of the year and closing them once winter temps really set in? Is providing washrooms of any kind being considered? If not, why not? If so, what is being considered? Thank you. Susan Beharriell

    sbeharriell asked 8 months ago

    Thank you for the feedback. While not part of the focus of the study, we will consider the addition of trail amenities such as washrooms as part of the review and recommendations.
