At the September 9, 2019 Council Meeting, Otonobee South Monaghan Township passed a motion to reduce the speed on Division Road from 80km/ hour to 60km/hour.
This is on the heels of a number of presentations received by both Douro Dummer Township and Otonabee South Monaghan Township from concerned residents over the past 18 months. Some time ago, our Council approved the reduction but because the road is jointly owned between the two Townships, it needed to also be approved by OSM.
This comes as positive news to many residents who have been dealing with what they report to be excessive speeding along the road. I was on hand in the Otonabee South Monaghan Chambers to hear the discussion and support our residents.
It will be a few weeks before a by-law is confirmed, police and other jurisdictions are notified. Once that happens, signs will be installed and the change will take effect.
