June 22, 2017: Update: Hintonburg’s 40 km Limit;
Change is on the way.

By Dickson Davidson.

We are well into spring and the 40 km/h signs are popping up all over Hintonburg. After just more than a year of participating with the residents of Hintonburg, street by street, door by door, the petitions to change the speed limit from 50 km/h to 40 km/h on all residential streets were summarized and consolidated.

On March 16 they were delivered to the City of Ottawa and shortly after, approved and put into effect. The City, which was very helpful and supportive throughout the petitioning process, indicated that they would set up the work order for 40 km/h speed limit signs to be made and posted at the next available shop time.

That work order has come up, and the so have the signs, all over Hintonburg. The area to be covered is from Holland, to the O-Train line, and from Scott to the Queensway.

Spencer Street will benefit too, from Parkdale to Rockhurst. The Hintonburg Community Association would like to thank all the residents of Hintonburg for taking the time to participate in this project, and the City of Ottawa for being so helpful and supportive, in completing this process.

We hope that it makes a positive change to the many aspects of living in this terrific neighbourhood of Ottawa.
