The work will begin Monday morning (Aug. 16) and is expected to take three days, weather dependent, according to a media release from the city.
“Based on initial site visits and discussions with the city staff, WSP has identified potential valuable ecological communities at the site that may present constrictions to the proposed development,” said Christie Lucas, environmental scientist.
The city said a team of public engagement experts from HDR, Inc. will lead a campaign to inform residents about the project, including hosting in-person open houses or workshops.
Coun. Doug O’Brien said he is concerned about moving forward with the Despard site assessment before completing the public consultation phase.
Council voted against Coun. Doug O’Brien’s motion to move forward as quickly as possible with School Board 69’s preferred traffic-calming option at Despard Avenue and Moilliet Street.
The proposed four-way stop sign’s effects on the intersection at Despard and Moilliet will be monitored by staff for six months and reported back to council.
City staff recommendations were based on the city’s traffic safety review of the area, which found no clearly defined problems at the intersection.
