I should clarify the PB process. The compromise package was agreed by the representatives from all assemblies throughout the ward. It does include the following pedestrian and cycling investments:

  1. Safe Rail Trail Access at Victoria Ave S ($100k)
  2. Pilot Project for a Network of "Urban Trail" Alleys ($230k)
  3. Crosswalk at Hunter St W & MacNab St S ($125k)

So, almost half of the total budget ($455k out of $1 million) went on pedestrian/cycling projects. It is not really fair to say that half of the total budget is "very little in pedestrian/cycling investments". This is a resident-driven process and I hope that more residents will participate in the future, both in coming up with the proposals and voting.

In any case, this will be an annual process which gives lots of opportunity to balance different needs.
