Councillor Jeromy Farkas is filing an urgent notice of motion to council to prevent similar construction projects.

In a statement emailed to 660 NEWS, the City said its “goal is always to minimize construction impacts to people who live, work and travel through our work sites, as much as possible.” and “moving forward, we’ll continue working to improve the coordination of these projects carefully, as they are scheduled to open at the end of the year.”
