What YOU Can Do
The ultimate decision over the approval process for a Third Crossings rests in the hands of our City Council. The next major vote to continue with the project will occur in the Spring of 2017.
City Council comprises a total of 13 votes.
At this point in time, according to the most recent vote those in favour of proceeding with the project are a slim majority –

If you consider a Third Crossing an unnecessary expense to the city that creates more problems than it solves, then your Councillor needs to hear your opinion. Their email addresses are below.

If the City hears nothing but positive comments about the Third Crossing, it will encourage them to believe that everyone wants it. But for those who oppose the building of a third crossing, now is the time to speak up.
We want to encourage our community residents to make their feelings known before it is too late.
You can contact the Mayor and your Councillor and ask for answers to your questions and make comments about the project.
