Over 40 residents participated in the Central Public School Community Safety Workshop along with representatives from Peel Police, Region of Peel Human Services, By-law Enforcement, City Security, the City’s Community Safety team, Welcoming Streets Outreach, Regeneration Outreach, Mayor Brown, Councillor Santos and Councillor Vicente and their support teams.
Residents in the Downtown Brampton area and along the Etobicoke Trail Creek have seen a rise in crime, drugs, mental health issues and encampments in the area. We’re taking the issue very seriously and convening a community safety meeting with the goal of creating an action plan and follow-up.
Brampton is taking a comprehensive approach to traffic calming to address speeding and unsafe driving in local neighbourhoods. City Council recently increased the budget for traffic calming with a focus to implement a combination of tools including traffic cameras, road diets, speed bumps, flexi-signs, and speed reductions.
