1. The city & region's planning departments have proposed that all traffic from this new development empty out onto Merivale Rd.
2. This will increase Merivale Rd. traffic by 2000 vehicles per hour (vph) & add onto the already 2300 vph we currently have, for a grand total of 4300 vph.
3. It is projected that this increase in vehicles will prompt a much higher incidence of cut through traffic in our community (i.e. Shillington, King, Anna, Laperriere, etc.)
4. The adjacent community at Clyde & Maitland (Copeland Park) have lobbied to have no road access on its side of the development. In the proposed plan, they are not taking on any of this traffic, although everyone knows that they should. They have insisted all along that the Carlington residents should take all of the traffic from this new development.
5. On behalf of the residents of our community, the Carlington Community Association (CCA) is contesting this proposed plan at the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB). We need to increase our membership and donations to help fund our case at the OMB.
Look at the figures on the right & decide for yourself what's fair! Or we can all fight back through the CCA to get a more fair decision at the OMB hearings.
