Cannice Ritchie started this petition to City Council and

I read a petition on the elementary school PAC page that is advocating for a sidewalk on the south side of the street on Westminster Avenue. 
Unlike anyone who may have created this petition, I have lived across the street for over 20 years and my husband has been here for 47. We watched the school being built and the designers address traffic and drop off concerns.
The initial concept was to have parents travel one way on Westminster to drop off in the designated space in front of the building. The problem lies with the parents who park and leave their car in drop off areas, resulting in a back log of cars. This results in rushed impatient parents that don't use the cul-de-sac  on Suffolk Ave or the Coquitlam Ave area or park further down and walk.  A sidewalk will not change the issue! It will create more problems. This will result in families dropping children off in the midst of the unaddressed traffic issue and having children cross the already congested street.
The issue is parents are not following rules, and being too rushed and impatient to put safety first. Please do NOT exemplify this. Consider a new solution behind the building to divide traffic, or even a no parking or resident only parking only on the South side of Westminster as an alternative. Nobody wants to see a child hurt on the road and a sidewalk on the north side will only promote putting more children in a dangerous situation. 

Please don't put parent convenience before safety of children for our community!
