Our Community, Our City
On January 18, 2014, in spite of much opposition from Kitsilano residents and others, Point Grey Road from Macdonald to Alma will close to through traffic. Some members of the WKRA, including those living on or near Macdonald, will be monitoring the impacts of this closure closely. Congestion on Macdonald and on 4th Avenue, short-cutting through adjoining side-streets, and traffic safety will be among the issues that many of us will be watching. If you have concerns about the impact of this arterial road closure and how it is affecting you, let us know by posting comments here and by communicating your feedback to City councillors and engineering staff – they need to know how this road closure is affecting residents in this neighbourhood.
**UPDATE: Comments are now closed on this post. Thank you to everyone who participated in the discussion. The volume of comments on this issue was more than we had anticipated and we thank you for your patience as we learn more about moderating community discussion online. We will continue to monitor the impacts of the closure and welcome your input on any future developments.
