Hello Lower Sapperton Neighbours!
As a follow up to the email we sent you on February 20th, this is to remind you of the upcoming Traffic Calming Workshop #2 scheduled for this Tuesday, March 8th at 8 PM.
The purpose of this workshop is to discuss concerns and hear feedback on specific elements of the proposed traffic calming design, and take new ideas that can help finetune the proposal prior to presenting it to the City of New Westminster for consideration. Please note that this is the final step in the resident-directed part of this process. We encourage anyone who is interested to participate in the workshop on March 8. If you are unable to do so, you are welcome to provide feedback or ideas via email to SappertonRA@gmail.com. Please also discuss this issue with your neighbours and encourage them to participate in the Workshop. We hope as many residents as possible will be part of this important discussion and have their voices heard. We would like to remind everyone that the SRA is acting as a facilitator and liaison to the City on this initiative, and the participation of the RA should not be seen as an endorsement of this proposal. The RA has not taken any position on this proposal.
If you would like to participate in the March 8 Workshop, please register using the Zoom link below:

The Lower Sapperton Traffic Calming Initiative Committee
Please note that the RA is not taking a position on whether there should be additional traffic calming, or on types of traffic calming measures.
The RA’s role in this initiative is to advise residents of this opportunity, provide opportunities for neighbourhood engagement, act as a liaison, facilitate a discussion, and, should there be sufficient residents’ support, present any proposal to the City that may emerge from this discussion.
Attached please find an update from the Traffic Calming Working Group and a vision they have proposed for additional traffic calming in Lower Sapperton.
This vision is based on feedback and input from the November 17, 2021, workshop in which many of you participated. Please carefully read through the attached document, envision how these proposed changes might impact you and the neighbourhood, and take the time to fill out the survey to provide feedback by February 4th, 2022.

The next scheduled SRA meeting on Thursday November 4, 2021. It will be a Zoom meeting. Particulars to come.
As you may know, the redevelopment of Royal Columbian Hospital will put the new ER entrance for patients and ambulances on Sherbrooke (it is now on East Columbia). An increase in vehicular traffic can be expected as a result, so our neighbourhood is talking to the City about possible traffic calming on Sherbrooke Street. We welcome input and suggestions from the community and thank you for taking the time to fill out this survey!
(Please note there are currently NO specific traffic calming measures or ideas being suggested. If it is determined that there is enough interest in the community in traffic calming on Sherbrooke, further consultation will happen with the City to figure out what solutions to use.)
Please complete survey by clicking on the image below by October 12 if possible. Thank you!
