Could a Murray St. block be closed?

Amherstburg town council will be considering several recommendations regarding its transportation master plan May 27, one of them being a permanent closure of a block of Murray St.

The recommendation calls for Murray St. to be closed between Ramsay St. and Dalhousie St. and converted into a pedestrian-only zone. 

Members of town council have already taken to their social media sites to try and gather public opinion, also asking people to e-mail to give feedback or register as a delegate by the May 23 deadline.

Other recommendations call for administration to be directed to institute a 30km/h “slow zone” in the Town Core as outlined in the Transportation Master Plan.

Administration would be directed to complete the short-term intersection improvements, including all-way stop signs, at Simcoe St./Meloche Road intersection if that recommendation is approved. 

In addition to the approval of the transportation master plan, administration could also be directed to incorporate components from the plan into future capital budgets.
