    Important changes are coming to the streets in your neighbourhood!

    Five neighbourhoods across the City of Peterborough have been identified as pilot study areas for traffic calming through the Calm Streets PTBO project! Draft traffic calming concepts were created inline with best practices and with input from the community for each of the five neighbourhood study areas.

    If you would like to learn about these proposed traffic calming concepts and share your thoughts as we move to finalize the plan, please join us for our last round of virtual workshops. Workshops are tailored to each neighbourhood study area and will take place in early December 2020. Workshops will take place on the following dates on Zoom:

    Ward 1 (Otonabee) - Sherburne Street / Morrow Street / Montgomery Street

    Ward 2 (Monaghan) - Westridge Boulevard / Cherryhill Road

    Ward 3 (Town) - Romaine Street

    Ward 4 (Ashburnham) - Auburn Street / Dunlop Street

    Ward 5 (Northcrest) - Franklin Drive
