Presentation by Gary Kocialek, Area Lead, Transportation Planning and Hillary Calavitta, Project Manager, Transportation System Planning

Received 2013-83

A copy of the presentation is available from the Office of the Regional Clerk.

Gary Kocialek, Area Lead, Transportation Planning and Hillary Calavitta, Project Manager, Transportation System Planning, provided an update on the Road Characterization Study (RCS) which is supported by a series of Term of Council Priorities, the Long Range Transportation Plan and the Strategic Goods Movement Network Study. The objectives of the RCS were to bring together stakeholders to develop a set of design guidelines that support established transportation priorities; maximize roadway efficiency; balance competing roadway demands; and improve connectivity to adjacent (current and future) land uses, and; uses both land use and functionality to inform road design. The outcomes of the RCS will be presented to Regional Council in March, 2013 and will include new road typologies for Regional Roads; design guidelines; and access control guidelines. A new Access Control By-law will be presented following the conclusion of the RCS.

Councillor Paterak suggested that the language used in the new design guidelines should highlight that lands located within protected areas, such, as the Greenbelt will always remain rural.

Councillor Sanderson noted that the Urban Main Street Design standards refer to bicycle lanes and he suggested that an alternative name be used that reflects other forms of active transportation, such as medical or motorized scooters.

Councillor Foley stated that attracting pedestrian traffic in hybrid communities should be considered as it will be key to the success of the businesses in the area, such as downtown Bolton and Streetsville.

Councillor Moore noted that cantilevered lighting is used in pedestrian zones in downtown Brampton to ensure sidewalks are well lit and she requested that the design guidelines include similar provisions.

Councillor Thompson commended staff for recognizing the importance of establishing guidelines that are adaptable to change.

Members of Council recognized that the RCS will facilitate a more streamlined environmental assessment process.
