2015 Annual Sustainable Community Summit Report

A community discussion on speed limits and road safety

September 23, 2015


Thanks to everyone who took the time to participate in my Annual Sustainable Community Summit this past spring.  It was a great event, and I was very impressed with the recommendations and ideas that resulted from our discussions.

Please find attached a copy of the letter and report I prepared for the Honourable Steven Del Duca,  Minister of Transportation for his review and consideration.  It was clear from the feedback received that there is a strong desire in Ottawa Centre to reduce the default speed limit on residential streets in Ontario to at least 40 km/h, and to give municipalities the authority to set their own limits. 


I am always available should you like to continue this conversation, and I will be sure to keep you informed of any updates or developments with regards to speed limits on residential roads  in our province.
