We're celebrating City Council's decision to make the Richmond-Adelaide Cycle Track, which includes Peter and Simcoe streets, permanent! We'll monitor developments to mode the cycle track on Adelaide to the north side, which should be considerably safer for cyclists, who won't have to avoid the commercial loading zones. The cycle tracks on Richmond and Adelaide flow through our neighbourhood between Spadina and Bathurst, so we have a keen interest in what happens with it. The cycle track's permanence is very welcome, and we can't wait to see how the switching sides of it on Adelaide improves things even further.
We have a date for Toronto City Council's Infrastructure and Environment Committee to consider the cycle tracks on Richmond, Adelaide, Peter, and Simcoe Street, which impacts the Garment District both directly (as it passes through on Richmond and Adelaide) and is fed into by Peter and Simcoe streets. You might remember that in June we posted photos of the maps the City laid out to receive feedback about the proposal. The committee will consider it on January 17th!
More information can be found at the committee's page on the proposal.
