About the Neighbourhood Traffic Calming Plan
In the fall of 2022, the City set out to update the existing Neighbourhood Traffic Committee Policy and Procedures (PDF). The goal of this project is to establish a set of updated guidelines for implementing traffic calming measures along new and existing roads in Vaughan to create a high-quality, people-oriented and sustainably built environment that continues promoting a culture of road safety.
A key focus of this project is to move towards a road network where residential and collector streets – the types of streets with homes, schools, neighbourhood parks, local businesses and community centres – are safe, welcoming and comfortable for users of all ages and abilities. The City knows streets are best when they help everyone feel connected, healthy and safe in their community.
Temporary measures will be installed in the summer of 2023 and monitored and evaluated into spring 2024. At that time, the temporary measures may be extended, refined or the City may consider another approach. The City will work closely with key stakeholders, including community members, Vaughan Fire and Rescue Services, York Region Transit and road safety partners, such as York Regional Police, to evaluate and monitor how the solutions are working.
The data from this project and the updated Neighbourhood Traffic Committee Policy and Procedures will be presented to Council in late 2024.
