Our project team hosted two community meetings and a site walk in February and March, and distributed and collected a community feedback form. We first presented two design options, with different configurations for vehicles, bikes and pedestrians. In both options we reduced the amount of vehicular lanes from four to two. After presenting the options, we continued to gather feedback from the community, and based on the comments heard throughout the public process and the input from the feedback forms, we found that the majority of the community liked both options, but a preferred option was identified.
The preferred option places the vehicles on one side of the median and the pedestrians and bikes on the other side. We identified a stronger preference to place the pedestrian and bikes on the north side of the median, and from there decided to move forward with detailed design on this option.The preferred option was presented as a preliminary final design at our most recent community meeting.
Some of the new elements in the design include additional traffic calming measures and clearly marked crosswalks for the major intersections. The condition of the road will be vastly improved with new paving, and pedestrians and bicyclists will have a dedicated and safe route through the park. We anticipate the new design will increase accessibility and safety for users of the park and reduce vehicular speeds. We also believe that the new design will bring a sense of unity for the park, with Mansell Street as a connection rather than a division between the north and south sides of the park. Current connections from Mansell to Shelley Street and other park roads will remain intact.
The project team is now working to secure grant funding for the project and will continue to keep the community updated on developments as they arise. All of our meeting materials can be downloaded from this website, including both the initial design concepts and the final preferred design option.A link to the staff report presented to the Commission can be found under “Supporting Documents”.
