The following letter was originally sent to Mayor Provenzano. The writer has not received a response from City Hall
Attention: Mayor Christian Provenzano
Subject: Mary Ave Traffic
Dear Mr Mayor;
This letter is a first effort to have the City resolve the vehicle traffic problems on Mary Ave.
The problems are twofold as follows:
1.City Buses (North Street route)
• Excessive bus speeds causing houses to shake and vibrate resembling the consequences
from minor earthquakes.
•City Buses on the North Street route supposedly have a restricted speed limit on Mary Ave
imposed by the bus management.
•Despite repeated calls to their management many of the drivers continue to ignore this
•Few if any residents in this area use the city bus.
2. Daily vehicle traffic to/from Fort Creek area and Sackville Rd.
•Mary ave should be renamed “The Mary Ave Expressway”.
•Many Vehicles to/from Fort Creek or Sackville Rd. are traveling well in excess of legal speed
limits enroute to their destination.
•Young children on the street are liable to have serious injuries from one of these vehicles if this situation is not corrected.
•Recently even GFL trucks use Mary Ave as a shortcut to their destination from their gated area at the North end of Sackville Rd.
Mr Mayor among others two solutions to these problems are:
•Reroute the City Bus North Street route to exclude Mary Ave,
•Restrict access to Mary Ave from North Street or Sackville.
These solutions would ease the difficulties current Mary Street residents are experiencing while providing a safer street for young children who are often unaware of vehicles.
Thank you for the attention to this matter. I will look forward to your response and proposed
13 Mary Ave
