Dupont and Palmerston Mid-Block Pedestrian Signal
I'm very excited that earlier this week, City Council approved a mid-block pedestrian signal on Dupont St, just east of Palmerston Ave.
One of my top priorities as your local City Councillor is to ensure that our neighbourhood is safe and livable for everyone. By lowering speed limits to 30km/hour on local streets in the Toronto East York District and working closely as a part of the SVRA Traffic & Transportation Committee, we are establishing a vision for improving traffic safety in the neighbourhood.
After many months, working with the Seaton Village Residents' Association, residents on Palmerston Ave, City staff and the developers at 500 Dupont (Lifetime Developments), we have secured a safe pedestrian crossing on Dupont, across from the future development at 500 Dupont St.
This crossing will ensure that current and future residents in Seaton Village can safely navigate Dupont St and will enhance the pedestrian experience of the area as new developments and residents join the community.
I want to extend a thank you and congratulations to the SVRA, engaged neighbours, City staff and Lifetime Developments for working hard to make this a reality.
