Western Road and Sarnia Road / Philip Aziz Avenue Improvements

Last week, the City held the first of two public information sessions on its plans to improve the traffic flows at the Sarnia and Western Road intersection. As an Environmental Assessment, the city is required to examine alternatives, and make recommendations as to the best alternative (a similar process has just been completed for the Wharncliffe and Oxford intersection and the passage under the railroad bridge). You will find the alternatives being considered at this point on the next to last page of the presentation.

Western University siren testing this week‏

Western has planned a test of its emergency weather siren between Tuesday and Thursday, Aug. 26-28, to ensure the system’s effective operation in warning campus and the surrounding community of severe weather situations.

The sirens are intended to be heard outdoors, and when that happens you should take immediate shelter indoors. Western is attempting to be able to send social media notifications when the audible tests are sounding this week, but these tests are not scheduled and at the discretion of those installing additional hardware.

It is Western’s intention to begin regular audible tests of the weather siren this Fall. They will share information about these tests as it becomes available.

To find out more about Western’s Emergency Weather Siren and what to do in an actual acute weather situation, visit the Severe Weather Siren webpage.

Downtown Master Plan

For those who were unable to attend the October 16th community engagement session regarding the draft Downtown Master Plan, an online survey has been created to gather further input. Click the link below in order to take part in the survey. Please note the survey response deadline is Friday November 1st, 2013. The Master Plan, if implemented, will cost many millions of tax supported dollars. Have your say.

You can find the SURVEY at:

The purpose of this survey is to gauge public interest and receive comments on elements of the draft Downtown Master Plan. This Survey has been prepared in two parts to align with the format used at the public consultation event that took place on October 16th, 2013 at the London Convention Centre. In this way, this survey serves as the alternate means of consultation for those who were unable to attend the event. For more information regarding the 6 Actions and 10 Transformational Projects please review the draft Downtown Master Plan.

Please help us spread the word by forwarding the survey link to family, friends and co-workers.
