SD57 Traffic Town Hall

We want to hear your voice!!! The SD57 District Parent Advisory Council (DPAC) is hosting a first ever virtual Town Hall with PG City Community Groups via Zoom this Monday June 7th @ 7:00pm to explore and discuss the issues and impacts of increasing traffic on our schools, families, and the surrounding communities.

What are your experiences as parents around traffic, safety, and commuting issues at our schools in SD57??

We want to know! We will be discussing:

  1. Safety and traffic: What are the experiences from your school and community?
  2. Barriers: What prevents you, your child, or family from walking or bicycling to school?
  3. Solutions: What do you see as potential solutions or interventions to improve the traffic and safety issues currently being experienced at your school? What changes do you see that would improve safety and provide better commuting options for students?
  4. Challenges: What infrastructure challenges have you experienced? Provide specific examples of sidewalks, crosswalks, crossing lights, etc.
