Bring your bike down to the North Haven Community Centre on July 8th from 3:30-5:00pm and learn how to fix a puncture and a few other basic checks that will have you riding smoothly on Nose Hill this summer.  This is hands on, so be ready to get some grease on your hands.  Come meet up with friends and have a slice of pizza.  

Remember to bring your helmet. We will meet in the parking lot at the hall.

This event is open to all North Haven teens! 

Please RSVP so that we have an idea of numbers.  

Please spread the word! Also, we welcome all newly graduated grade 6's to our group.  Remember Kids in the Haven is a youth group for North Haven kids grades 7-12.

Kids in the Haven will then take a break over the summer months and meet up again in September.

Meeting Record 

Presentation

NHCA will host an information and discussion open meeting on April 18 from 7 to 9 PM. City Transportation representatives have been advised of this meeting and invited to take part.

The primary topic will be the dangerous “T” intersection of John Laurie Blvd, McKnight Blvd and 48th Avenue, where several accidents have occurred, at least one of which was fatal. One was very recent.

In 2005, after several consultations with the community, a consultant’s report was given approval in principal by City Council, but never funded. 

The report recommended a major re-alignment to eliminate the “T” intersection and make it a smooth 70 kmh curve. An underpass would permit free flow on eastbound 48 Avenue to merge with eastbound McKnight traffic near Northmount Drive. 

Several properties in Highwood and a few in Thorncliffe would be needed and all were purchased by the City.

The funding for the work is not in the Investing in Mobility 2015-2024 plan.

Related to the above, intensive development to the east including the Highland Park golf course project and the transit oriented development that will accompany the Green Line LRT will put even more pressure on the corridor all the way to Deerfoot. This is the main route to the airport for North Haven residents.

There is also concern about pedestrian and to a lesser extent bicycle safety at this intersection.

Please attend, and if you wish, contribute your ideas and opinions about how to move this onto the front burner.
