The Begbie View Elementary School Parent Advisory Council (PAC) has their eyes on safety improvements around the new elementary school.

In a letter the city council, PAC spokesperson Catherine Bellerose requested city council attend a Nov. 19, 7 p.m. meeting at the school to discuss traffic issues.

They’re concerned about speed and general traffic issues in the neighbourhood and are singling out several problem areas. They include Ninth Street between Mackenzie and Vernon Avenue; Mackenzie Avenue between Seventh Street and Ninth Street; and Vernon Avenue between Third Street and Ninth Street.

“It is hoped at this meeting that speed zones of school grounds versus playgrounds could be explained to us,” Bellerose wrote, adding: “The PAC [can] explain their concerns and then [have] a brainstorming session of how safety could be improved.”
