The Wildwood neighbourhood plan is included as part of the attachments. The intent of this first meeting is to listen to residents about their concerns in the neighbourhood. The attached plan is the only document that we will be bringing along. Thanks.

comment...I have a major concern with our traffic light system in Wildwood, as well as every other area of the City. There appears to be no definitive plan as to the installation of the declining numerical walk lights. I am really fed up with having to constantly watch the "blinky walk lights" and wonder when will I get an amber light! I have also timed in an un scientific way the time between when the amber lights up and the red lights up. Appears to be no consistency in Saskatoon. This is a major traffic hazard in itself, not providing sufficient time to clear the intersections. I have driven all over Canada and find we have some of the poorest traffic movement design. Even extending the time the lights remain amber would be a big help in eliminating our "running lights" problem.

Thank you for the many improvements to Active Transportation that are proposed as a result of the Wildwood NTR. I want to make two additional suggestions for immediate improvement: 1) Regarding the NTR's item 11 (Mall entry/exit at Circle Drive northbound off-ramp), I suggest that you make a more substantive change at this location by allowing only exits from the Mall to the Ramp, and 2) I suggest that all traffic arrangements around, into / out of and through the Mall properties be reviewed from scratch to implement best practices for safe, convenient, pleasant and attractive solutions for pedestrians, cyclists, transit users and motorists over the next few years . It should be possible to have convenient and safe pedestrian and transit user corridors installed by the time the BRT on 8th Street goes live in 2021, and the rest may be implemented way before the Wildwood Transit Village is built in the distant future. Close cooperation between the City and the Mall is vital in this endeavor.
