The biggest need in this neighborhood is the need for sidewalks running on the avenues. The situation is not safe for pedestrians especially in winter. Also cars often speed on Lorne and Taylor in this residential area. CoS should consider narrowing the streets, adding a few more stops signs or other traffic calming measures.

We've brainstormed a few things: Traffic issues--volume, noise, speed -sheer volume of traffic on Ruth St & Eastlake Ave (which at times spills onto Ash St) has really worsened since new bridge opened -many vehicles speed down these streets & the modified LOUD exhaust systems on the trucks all year & motorcycles in season, are disruptive noise pollution (AM/PM rush hours are the worst) -Eastlake seems to be some kind of short cut and needs definitive deterants -Broadway & Ruth--traffic lights on that corner might help? -city bylaw on noise decibels? -Eastlake needs 4 way stop signs--as many as possible, especially Eastlake & Hilliard, & a very LOW speed zone--20 kms all along Eastlake between Ruth & Taylor ALL YEAR (note: during the warm seasons with the soccer pitch it's a major safety issue with kids & balls flying out onto Eastlake between parked cars & speeders going pedal to the metal along Eastlake; also, many drivers ignore the existing yield signs) -in Calgary they use concrete blocks to block streets off but not sure if that is feasible for Eastlake -residential streets off Eastlake would benefit from reduced speeds as well--again we'd be happy with 20 kms! As Ash & Eastlake are wide streets some folks seem to think they're race tracks! Thank you for anything you can do to address the above issues. Coleman/Mitchell

I find the alternating yield signs frustrating and prefer to use streets like Victoria where you consistently have the right of way. That said, I can understand some residents preferring less noise etc. I do agree with Bert that the most pressing issue is sidewalks. I would like to be able to walk around the area without needing to walk on the road.
