May 30th: Traffic Issues in Hastings-Sunrise, “Listen and Learn” consultation with City of Vancouver

If you live in the neighbourhood in the wide area around Hastings Community Centre, you have likely noticed a huge increase in traffic volume and driver aggressiveness. Many people have been expressing their concerns to city staff in Vancouver.

Now, the city is hosting a “Listen & Learn” session, to get feedback and input. If you live in this area and can drop by the meeting for a short time, it would be great. The City wants to hear our concerns and the more voices the better. We’d like our kids to be able to safely walk and ride their bikes in the hood, and us adults too!

We have experienced extreme traffic concerns, including on many of the west-east-west residential streets (drivers bypassing Hastings Street and 1st Avenue), including speeding, failure to stop for pedestrians, tailgating, speeding in school zones and more. Parking issues too. Please share with your neighbours and friends in the community. Let’s use this opportunity to try to improve the traffic issues in the ‘hood, before someone gets hurt!

DETAILS:
“Hastings-Sunrise Transportation Listen and Learn”
Tuesday, May 30, 2017
5:00-8:00pm
Hastings Community Centre,
3096 East Hastings St

The City recently engaged with residents on walking and cycling improvements to the western part of the Union-Adanac Corridor.

Before launching an engagement process on the eastern section of Corridor, we want to better understand neighbourhood transportation issues between Hastings Street, Boundary Street, East 1st Avenue, and Renfrew Street. What we hear will inform future improvements.

We want to hear from you!
Join us for a conversation.
Join us at a “Listen and Learn” session to share your neighbourhood transportation concerns. City staff will be available to discuss walking, cycling, transit, vehicle traffic, and goods movement in the area.
