On the chart below, please indicate what criteria you think are most important and least important as the City looks to accommodate more people and businesses in the historic neighbourhoods area in the future. I would like future development activity in my neighbourhood to:

8Feb 5, 2010 7:58 PMwhen looking at architecture don't mix heritage with plate glass store type fronts
9Feb 5, 2010 9:47 PMlimit new development, we do not need urban intensification in the area
10Feb 6, 2010 1:39 PMAllow more secondary units/granny flats
11Feb 7, 2010 12:27 PMI would like the city to correct their mistake directing traffic up Toronto strret, this street has been saturated with traffic since they did the detour they need toclose it for while for just residents till traffic slows down,,and to do as they prmised at the intersection of Ross street. They also need to route traffic down Bradford as the traffic now on Lakeshore is crazy a
12Feb 9, 2010 10:53 PMMore frequent transit stops (ie. once every 15 minutes)
13Feb 10, 2010 2:13 PMComplementary=consistent, not contrasting
14Feb 10, 2010 4:16 PMComplementary to the site etc should include contrast and not be understood as neo-Victorian etc
15Feb 12, 2010 5:24 PMThis would have been better if we were asked to rank them in importance
16Feb 14, 2010 5:24 PMSt. Augustine Florida faithfully rebuilt many historic buildings in the 1960's and 70's. Many old structures in Barrie may not lend themselves, cost-effectively to renovation. Consider the St. Augustine model as an alternative.
17Feb 15, 2010 3:18 PMPassage way over the train tracks for easy access to lakefront
18Feb 16, 2010 4:58 PMFind a way for other businesses than bars to stay open in the evening.
19Feb 16, 2010 8:02 PMComplementary=consistent, not contrasting
20Feb 16, 2010 8:03 PMtransportation access from Georgian to the GO train
21Feb 17, 2010 12:08 AMno more highrises around the lakeshore they are destroying the looks of barrie
22Feb 17, 2010 8:32 PMDesign a uniform theme or slogan for the downtown that would be used by merchants, the city and others in promoting the downtown core.
23Feb 18, 2010 2:27 PMContrary to claims by the city, Barrie is not bicycle or pedestrian friendly. There are few bicycle lanes. The curb lanes where bicycles tavel are potholed and very rough. The stop light settings favour autos, not people. Demand walk signals are the pits. As a pedestrian, you are penalized by have to stand exposed to the elements for longer than would seem necessary, to get a 'walk' signal, and, as a cyclist, the lights don't change for you at all.
24Feb 22, 2010 2:11 PMWe need more year round recreational facilities that attract and maintain citizens in in the Downtown
25Feb 22, 2010 2:17 PMBicycling should be used for other than recreation. Impossible to cycle on Dunlop and Bayfield Streets - I need to use the pavement
26Feb 22, 2010 2:35 PMEnsure the Downtown main straffic streets (dunlop) do not become clogged with cars and trucks that discourage local shopping
27Feb 22, 2010 6:52 PMget bicycles off paths at the beach - build running & bicycle circles pedestrian safety is vital
28Feb 24, 2010 4:09 PMblend in architechturally, look, height etc both on residential streets and new development in exisitng historic neighbourhoods
29Feb 25, 2010 6:34 PMI dont want our waterfront to look like TOronto or Detroit. High rises should be relegated away from the lake as the lake and surrounding parkland belong to the people - not the developers.
30Feb 25, 2010 10:37 PMStop changing bylaws to suit developers. They'll build aayway anyway.E.G. Height restrictions 30M be maintained in downtown core. Don't block waterfront view from Fr. Grant sq. and foot of Bayfield, Maple Don't know what the answer is but rollerblading and bicycling
31Feb 26, 2010 4:32 PMupkeep of historical properties should be mandatory i.e. painting and repairs in keeping with the age of the house
32Feb 28, 2010 8:27 PMretain elementary and secondary schools
33Mar 2, 2010 1:26 PMSidewalks should be completed round to Anne St
34Mar 2, 2010 1:49 PMI work Downtown at Burger King as a cleaner. These things are necessary, believe me. The elderly and handicapped and tired shoppers require downtown benches to sit on. 2. You require a full-time drop-in centre for the homelesss because the Busby Centre is open only until 2:30pm then they're onto our property where they are treated terribly by our bus terminal security. 3rd More mental health and drug addiction dry-out spots please! People are refraining from visiting Burger King because of our druggies! It is dead. 4th housing must be less than $910/month. ODSP gives you $1,047 on average to live. THink homeless.
35Mar 2, 2010 2:11 PMPlease! More traffic signals on Wellington Street West between Anne St and Wellington St W around to and past the plaza. Traffic is too fast in this area. It is a straight run and very dangerous for crossing at bus stops on Wellington St.
36Mar 2, 2010 6:49 PMDowntown and elsewhere can be dangerous enough for those walking and vehicles without adding others. Often the 'others' are reckless. Better by the Bay on the designated paths. All the above seems to relate to those who will eventually afford to live there. We need affordable housing.
37Mar 3, 2010 3:44 PMBike lanes that are safe
