Councillor Vaughan recently wrote a letter to Seaton Village residents regarding the traffic safety concerns which was emailed last week to SVRA members:

Dear Seaton Village Residents,

A number of concerns about the safety of Barton Avenue between Christie Street and Bathurst Street in Seaton Village have been brought to my office. In partnership with the Seaton Village Residents’ Association, I am holding a meeting to receive feedback from the local community on how to address these concerns.

This discussion stems from specific concerns about the safety of this street, especially for children walking to and from school. In response to this concern, it was proposed that the City install a left hand turn restriction from Christie to Barton. The purpose of the meeting is to gather feedback from the community on this proposal before determining how to move forward.

If you cannot attend this meeting, but would like to comment on this proposal, you can contact my office at councillor_vaughan@toronto.ca or at 416-392-4044. The Seaton Village Residents’ Association can be reached at seatonvillagetoronto@gmail.com.

Yours Truly,

Adam Vaughan, City Councillor

Ward 20, Trinity-Spadina

The meeting is open to all residents of Seaton Village.  If you cannot attend the meeting, you can email any concerns or opinions that you may have to the SVRA mailbox and we’ll be happy to forward them to Councillor Vaughan at the meeting.
