The city council received 261 public submissions by 9am on Friday on two options to improve safety at the Breens, Harewood and Gardiners Rds junction. The feedback arrived within the first four days of the consultation opening date. The closing date for submissions is set for June 10. To compare, the city council received 247 submissions on its draft Annual Plan over a month. Harewood Ward city councillor Aaron Keown said the quick influx of submissions was “a pretty clear indication from the public that they were well and truly ready for this consultation.” Option one, which is the city council’s preferred option, is to make Gardiners and Breens Rds a left-turn in and left-turn out only by closing the median on Harewood Rd. •Turn to page 4 DEDICATED: City councillor Aaron Keown has been putting up posters around Bishopdale to inform residents of the current consultation out for the intersection of Breens, Harewood and Gardiners Rds.
