Regarding parking issues in Grosvenor Park, I wonder if City Council might amend, or the VVCA might petition for, parking regulations that would: - Restrict non-resident parking to areas adjacent to our parks or beside residential housing but not in front of our homes. - Enable homeowners to print-at-home vehicle permits for visitors - This suggestion will need more clarification/detail, which will be available from the City of Edmonton. Parking regulations have been, I believe, successfully implemented for the Belgravia neighbourhood, which is adjacent to the University of Alberta with historically similar parking and traffic issues.

Hi Justine.

Thanks for the opportunity to attend the meetings and provide solutions to help reduce the volume and speed of non-local traffic in our neighbourhood.

I have two recommendations, on behalf of a number of residents on Garrison Crescent and Bate Crescent:

Install temporary bollards in the N/S (unpaved) alley between Copland Crescent & Garrison Crescent. This option was originally proposed by the neighbourhood residents/IAS committee as a potential solution to eliminate vehicles from short-cutting (and speeding) through a residential alleyway. This alleyway would retain its intended use, which is to allow residents to access their homes and garages. The installation of these bollards would not impede pedestrian flow.

Close the median at Bate Crescent and Main Street. This would make the intersection a one-way right turn only when travelling S/B. The benefit to residents would be to reduce non-local, short-cutting traffic from abusing Bate Crescent during rush hour, as they attempt to get ahead of traffic at the 4-way stop at Main Street & Preston Avenue.

Thanks. Ian
