04:03 ETC(04) 2008 Annual Warranted Sidewalk Program
(TS1163).
“Proposed works to be undertaken in 2008, under the Annual Warranted Sidewalk Program, whereby areas in the City of London that do not have sidewalks are assessed for pedestrian safety and prioritized. Typically two to three new sidewalk locations are constructed each year through the program.”
Only 4 sidewalks are being proposed for construction this year because of the inadequate current annual budget of only $200,000.

05:00 CAPS(01) Dearness Home Community Newsletter – April 2008.
(post Cte. decision here)


05:00 CAPS(02) 2nd Report of the Community Safety and Crime Prevention Advisory Committee.
“…the Community Safety and Crime Prevention Advisory Committee (CSCP) heard a verbal presentation from G. Fowler, 962 Eagle Crescent, with respect to pedestrian safety issues. The CSCP was advised of the following by Mr. G. Fowler: (a) he has previously asked the Environment and Transportation Committee to establish a Pedestrian Safety Committee; (b) the newly-appointed Municipal Council dealt with this issue in camera; (c) a report was prepared and given to the Board of Control, but Mr. Fowler has not seen the report; (d) he has been advised by the Civic Administration that the Transportation Master Plan is not being updated at this time; (e) he feels that the City of London does not care about its citizens; and (f) he was successful in having a traffic study done by the London Police at the corner of Commissioners Road and Pond Mills Road; it being noted that the conclusion of the study is that the intersection is dangerous to pedestrians. The CSCP asked its committee Secretary to provide it and Mr. Fowler with a copy of the report dealing with pedestrian safety issues. The CSCP indicated it will review the report and make recommendations and will invite Mr. Fowler back when this issue is dealt with by the CSCP. “
Need for differentiation between ‘report’ and ‘study.’ Reinforce complaint that as a pedestrian-rights activist, I was deliberately excluded from the review of the TMP. Pursue issue of Commissioners/Pond Mills by filing copy of police report with the committee and specifically requesting that action be taken. Point out the complete lack of response by city staff re pedestrian safety at the same time that administration is proposing spending the entire $5.8 million transfer on road paving (see: ETC#9)

Fowler, 962 Eagle Crescent, with respect to pedestrian safety issues. The CSCP asked for the following information: (a) any by-laws, both municipal and provincial, relating to pedestrian safety issues; (b) the statistics for pedestrian-related accidents and the number of times the pedestrian is at fault to be included in the Police Statistics provided to the CSCP on a monthly basis; and (c) statistics from hospital emergency rooms relating to the number of pedestrian injuries: it being noted that the CSCP received information on its February 22, 2007 Agenda with respect to this matter. “
