Calling all Otonabee Ward Traffic Calming Champions

Thank you for your continued involvement and participation in the Calm Streets Study Areas for:

1) Whitefield Drive/Silverdale Road/Golfview Road, and
2) High Street. 

After some very engaging and interactive workshops, I imagine that everyone is excited to advance to the next phase of the Calm Streets process which involves choosing your preferred traffic calming solution; the option that you think best solves the traffic issues in your neighbourhood.  Surveys have now been direct mailed to each home in the study areas.  The survey forms  include a unique survey number – which can also be used for online login to ConnectPtbo  – so that surveys aren’t double counted.  Please complete the survey online, or use the hardcopy which can be returned in the pre-paid envelope.

The deadline is May 23rd, so let’s get those surveys in so that staff can tabulate the results. 

Thank you for participating, and for being neighbourhood traffic calming champions!

About the Otonabee Ward Website

This site is intended as a resource to engage, inform and inspire all residents of Otonabee Ward 1 (OW1).  Think of it as YOUR website. 

Please explore the site to find answers to frequently asked questions (FAQ), quick links to online reporting, or to learn about upcoming meetings as well as local events happening inside our Ward and across our city and region.  The ‘Happening Now’ sidebar also provides public service notices and links to the most recent information impacting you and your family.

To learn more about my background and council portfolios, please visit the Meet Kim page or better yet, visit the Calendar Page and join me at the next online public event.

The OW1 website also hosts a blog where you have the opportunity to have a voice and engage your neighbours by writing about upcoming projects, highlighting special places and the wonderful people who live within our community.  See the sidebar to connect to the most recent blog posts or use the Navigation Menu at the top of this home page to access the full list of posts and commenting policy.  It’s your opportunity to contribute something valuable, so please let me know if you would like to submit your own post! 

A unique feature of the OW1 website is the Ward map (please see below).  


This website employs accessibility features that I hope you will find helpful. Site accessibility information  is located  on the Accessibility page.  If you have feedback on how to make the site better or more accessible, please email your feedback to Kim Zippel.
