matchmaking in 2008

Councillor Russ Powers got back to me with an answer from city staff on the mismatched crosswalks/ramps at Hatt and Ogilvie we posted earlier:


Thank you for forwarding this concern to us for review. This intersection will be added to the 2008 Concrete Removal and Replacement list and the ramps will be added in 2008.

This is a small victory for that segment of Dundas that rolls (wheelchairs, scooters) or have need of other mobility devices to get around town. It's unfortunate that when the new sidewalk was installed this fall, they didn't line up the ramp with the existing painted crosswalk. The remedy will come next year.
