Stop signs staying parked on Welland street
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.
