Background and Analysis:

In February, a citizen emailed the Committee to inform it that he had called the police department’s non-emergency line to report a speeding truck on the Karen Fraser Woodland Trail. He reported that the dispatcher asked him for a nearby intersection and did not seem to understand that the Woodland Trail intersected with some City streets. He came to the March BPAC meeting to follow up on the email, and he spoke the Committee.

 

The Committee requested that staff research the issue and report back at this meeting. Staff has researched it and taken several follow-up steps, which we will share with the BPAC.
