The crosswalk in front of Edward Johnson School has been a concern for parents. Recently a mother and child were struck by a car while crossing Stevenson St. on their way to the school. City staff and police have studied the problem and are recommending that a permanent adult crossing guard be posted to assist at the crossing. In addition, staff are also recommending that the school limit access to the parking lot and to investigate options for relocating the school bus loading zone.
These recommendations will be presented to the Emergency Services, Community Services and Operations Committee on March 14 before being presented to Council.
The committee meets at 5pm in Council chambers at City Hall.
