Playground Zones Survey Results

Thank you to all of the Ward 9 residents and other Edmontonians who took the time to complete my survey on playground zones in our city ahead of the Community and Public Services committee meeting.

I wanted to reach out to as many residents as possible to get your feedback on the unintended consequences that have come with playground zones, as well as your thoughts on some solutions.

In total, almost 1,200 individuals completed the survey in a little less than a week, showing that this is an issue that Edmontonians care deeply about.

Death By A Thousand Cuts

Jasper.jpg

Back in the 1990’s, the residents of what is now Ward 9 used Keillor Road as the most direct route between home and downtown.  Because the north end of Ward 9 is an island, bounded by the river and the Whitemud Creek Ravine, Keillor Road was the most direct vehicle route.  But the road was woefully inadequate, was falling into the river, all that peak hour traffic was profoundly unfair to the residents of Belgravia.  Keillor Road was closed, and residents of the southwest were directed to make their way downtown by way of Stony Plain Road, 102 Avenue-Jasper Avenue, 111 street / 109 street or Gateway Boulevard.  The “end of the world” is actually the remnants of a retaining wall meant to hold Keillor road on the river bank.

Terwillegar Drive Development

To say that transportation is an issue in Ward 9 is a tremendous understatement.  Residents of our Ward must continually adjust for our deficient transportation network as they consider how to get to and from work, how to get their kids to school, how to get to those extra-curricular activities, or whether to participate in those activities at all.
