  1. I belong to many groups and can not spare time to join CSCA but would like to bring one essential traffic issue to your attention:
    Mount Newton Cross Rd. between West Saanich Road and Wallace Drive.
    The recently approved MNX Rd. trail extension completion will alleviate part of the problem as there is no shoulder between W. Saanich Rd. and St. Stephen’s Rd..
    The greater problems are traffic speed and commercial traffic NOT making local deliveries.
    *Both could be solved with speed bumps. As this is no longer a major Fire Hall access perhaps this could be reconsidered.
    *Relocating the Truck Restrictions sign to both north and south shoulders of West Saanich Rd rather than its current location where it is only visible AFTER the turn is completed.
    *Reduced speed to 40k.
    Personal experience of a friend walking beside me being clipped by a speeding car’s offside mirror and my self walking home with the dog jumping for our lives out of the trajectory of a distracted driver who never did notice us flat in the gravel on the side of the road.
    The north end of MNX Rd. just east of W. Saan. is particularly dangerous as there is a blind hump on a sharp corner that vehicles naturally accelerate for. When it is dump truck of semi with 40 foot rig lives are in danger.
    PLEASE ADD THIS SECTION OF RD. AS A PRIORITY TO YOUR LIST OF TRAFFIC CALMING.

  2. I am new to Central Saanich so I have not attended a meeting yet and I have another commitment for tonight so I am not able to be at the meeting.
    I am wondering if there will be an all candidates meeting and if this association will ask candidates if they will follow the Common Vision, Common Action statement that this association has signed.

    I am also concerned about the rising danger of crossing Mt Newton Cross Rd on Central Saanich Rd. I emailed the head engineer for Central Saanich to ask about the plans for this intersection particularly as the Marigold development will soon be finished and the danger will increase dramatically. I did not hear back from him.
