Stop signs stay­ing parked on Wel­land street

The Welland Tribune - - Local - DAVE JOHN­SON

City coun­cil again put the brakes on a no­tice of mo­tion to re­move stop signs at Wel­land­vale and Good­willie drives in Wel­land’s north end.

Ward 4 Coun. Tony DiMarco in­tro­duced the mo­tion Tues­day night that asked for the re­moval of stop signs on Wel­land­vale, on ei­ther side of Good­willie, be­cause they “were never deemed war­ranted or erected as per the guide­lines that the city has pre­vi­ously fol­lowed as set out by the MTO (Min­istry of Trans­porta­tion).”

His mo­tion said prior to the plac­ing of the signs in 2016 there was never a com­plaint, ac­ci­dent, close call, prop­erty dam­age or in­jury, but since the signs were in­stalled, there have been nu­mer­ous com­plaints and near misses caus­ing le­git­i­mate safety con­cerns.

Af­ter Ward 1 Coun. Mary Ann Grimaldi called the ques­tion on DiMarco’s mo­tion, only he, Ward 2 Coun. David McLeod and Ward 5 Coun. Claudette Richard voted in favour of it.
