Past updates

December 2016

We conducted a Business and Goods Movement Survey with businesses on Commercial Drive. The purpose of the survey was to help us better understand the commercial loading, delivery, parking, and access needs of businesses on The Drive.

We then hosted a one-day drop-in event to share the results of the Business and Goods Movement Survey with businesses and to discuss improvements. The survey gave us a better understanding of the loading, delivery, access, and parking issues for Commercial Drive businesses.

October 2016

We held two open houses on October 20 and 22 for you to learn about the project.

As well, we asked what you thought about improving travel and parking along Commercial Drive in an online questionnaire from October 21 to November 6. Thank you to everyone who participated! We're now analyzing the feedback we received and preparing a summary.

September 2016

We conducted a Business and Goods Movement survey with businesses on Commercial Drive. The purpose of the survey was to help us better understand the commercial loading, delivery, parking, and access needs of The Drive businesses.
