Chatting with customers at 541 Eatery was worthwhile. We sat up in the cafe (thanks to the Director, Sue Carr!!) and then reached out to people as they either went to order food or, were leaving.
People shared what they did not like about the neighbourhood streets. A big concern was the “street activities” that some found to be an impediment to enjoying the experience of walking along Barton.
Others pointed out that there are many cyclists whizzing along Barton that don’t know how to ride properly, endangering others in the meantime.
Many said they wanted the street to be beautified with art, and nature and that more garbage cans were in order.
