District of North Vancouver staff is recommending the council approve a Local Service Area project for the construction of traffic calming on Donegal Place in Delbrook area.
District’s Community Charter allows a municipality to establish a local area service for the benefit of a part of the municipality, which is paid by a tax that is imposed only within that area. In July last year, District of North Vancouver received an informal petition from residents requesting traffic calming measures on Donegal Place.
A petition signed by 23 of the thirty-two property owners who would benefit from the proposed local area service was received by DNV to install two speed humps on the north and south side of Donegal Place. The benefitting properties at 706 to 799 Donegal Place would pay the estimated $9,020 required for this petition.
Following the petition, DNV staff collected traffic data this spring, which indicated the street was a low priority for traffic calming. Staff concluded that any traffic calming would have to be resident funded as a Local Area Service Project.
Council is expected to give final approval to these plans in a council meeting today.
