Update on Golden closure

4 03 2008

As a follow-up to our December letter regarding the possible closure of Golden Avenue between Richmond and Byron, I and WCA vice-chair Cherolyn Knapp recently met with Councillor Leadman to clarify the status of this proposal.

We are able to confirm that:

  • Bourk Family Developments (owners of Westboro Station) do not intend to proceed with their application to close the street at this time.
  • No other closure applications for Golden Avenue are currently on the table or in the pipeline.
  • In the near future the Councillor intends to use funds from her office to sponsor an analysis of the transportation impacts of any future closing. This study will take into account the issues and recommendations already identified in the Westboro/Highland/McKellar Park Area Traffic Management Study which is nearing completion.

Given that the majority of the community has expressed their opposition to the Golden Ave. road closure proposal, why should our tax dollars be wasted on a study?

I rather think that Bourk’s are still interested in this.

Should we expect that a study funded by the Councillor’s office will result in a recommendation that differs from what the Councillor wants to do?

Aren’t there more worthwhile uses for public funds, like the feeding, clothing, and housing the less fortunate in our community?
