Once again it appears that the Ward 10 Councillor is being allowed to (mis)appropriate funds earmarked for a very worthy project for a project of her choosing that does not fit the criteria. Grays Road at Jasper Drive is a school crossing zone . It should fall under the School Zone Safety Program and proper, safer changes made.(like a crossing guard, School Zone signs, etc)

For PXO crossovers the following criteria (among other things) must be met:
-pedestrian facilities on both sides of the road
- accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, compliant curb cut and sidewalk depressions at the crossing; and
- not within 200 metres of another crossing control treatment (unless traffic volumes are high)
That location, which doesn't have sidewalks on the east side) does not fit the above criteria for a PXO crossover and spending funds there takes away from the many other locations that are on the wait list.
More importantly, the residents deserve a proper School Zone change for the safety of their children and not one that is just good enough.
