    Dear Mr. Knack,

    I am gobsmacked by the blading plan just announced by the city. Starting a 12:01 am?

    So, we’ll have heavy equipment moving though the residential areas of our city throughout the night making tons of engine noise and scraping concrete with metal. Seriously?? What a ludicrous idea! This is when the vast majority of people will be at home, with their cars parked, and trying to sleep.

    Why not do the work during the day when most people are at work? Much of the street parking will be away (at work) and most people won’t be trying to rest for the next day at their job.

    This plan shows a complete lack respect for your citizens and disdain for common courtesy and common sense.

    Frankly, I question the value of blading at all but, since it is going to happen, does it need to be so intrusive into your citizens lives.

    I look forward to your response.

    Regards,

    Scott Wood

      Good afternoon Scott. Thank you for the message and please call me Andrew. My apologies for the late reply as I didn’t receive email notification of this comment. Unfortunately, with the size of our roadway network, if we were to limit hours of residential blading to daytime, it would take much longer to complete the work. This has been their approach since neighbourhood blading started in 2006. It’s not ideal but they do their best to be thoughtful when they are in communities. So my biggest worry about changing this now is that it would take much longer for people to see action in their communities which is not something that I think many people would be supportive of. At least that’s based on the fact that I can’t recall people ever raising this before. If there was strong public support for that, I’d certainly be willing to raise it with the rest of Council. I hope this information helps but if you have any other questions or comments, please let me know. Have a great weekend.

    What’s up Andrew Knack. I see we are working through the speed limit issue. If you folks do decide to use the slower speeds, how about we give a nod to the silent majority….the 90% who drive cars…….and call the initiative “Commute Zero”.
    In deference to the 30 km/h limit, lets change the welcome sign to “The City of Escargot” with a sub caption that reads: “You are not entering a funeral procession, the speed limit is 30 km/h”.
