Community meeting addresses speed issue in Victoria

The topic of vehicle speed limits in residential neighbourhoods is up for discussion again at a public meeting March 27 at S.J. Willis school.

Speakers include representatives from Community Advocates for Reduced Speed and the Greater Victoria Cycling Coalition, plus Victoria councillors Shellie Gudgeon and Ben Isitt, Saanich Coun. Vic Derman and Oak Bay Coun. Michelle Kirby.

A Victoria council resolution to lower the default speed limit in B.C. from 50 to 40 kilometres per hour will be considered next month by the Association of Vancouver Island and Coastal Communities. Any change has to be mandated by the province. For more about the meeting, visit the Facebook page Public Forum on Municipal Speed Limits.

S.J. Willis school is at 923 Topaz Ave.
