The Review

Barriers arrived in downtown Thornbury, and most will be leaving

Posted On: Thursday, June 25, 2020

The BIA has been working with the Town on a compromise solution to the Jersey barriers on Bruce St. S. that will satisfy the health unit requirements for sufficient space on the sidewalks during busy times and still provide parking space for handicapped visitors and for curbside pick up.

Barriers arrived in downtown Thornbury, and most will be leaving

The main congestion areas have been identified as being at the Thornbury Bakery, The Cheese Gallery, and Marion's Hair Salon. 

Jersey barriers will therefore be placed in those areas with the intent that the 'street' portion be used for those waiting for service and for tables and chairs appropriately distanced, and that the sidewalks be reserved for pedestrian traffic. 

Furthermore, there are to be absolutely no encumbrances anywhere on the sidewalks on either side of the full length of the street, which includes signs, planters, tables, or chairs.

The goal is to maximize the space available to pedestrians while minimizing the risk of Covid19 cases which might lead the health unit to decree a rollback to phase 1 opening criteria. 

The remaining areas of Bruce St S will be available for parking. 

As mentioned earlier, this is a compromise which will hopefully satisfy most of the businesses on the street while minimizing the risk to the public. 

We will be asking council on Monday to approve these changes.
