Powell Avenue Restrictions

Many Glebe Annex residents expressed concern over signage and restricted access on Powell Ave in the Glebe. GACA, as well as many Glebe Annex residents, have been in touch with the Councillor and his office on this issue. The signage results from the City’s policy to permit local traffic only signs in some neighbourhoods to encourage active transportation on local streets during COVID-19.

The signs which threatened to ticket/fine violators were put up in error and have since been replaced by more neutral signage which focuses on the need to share the road. Regardless, Glebe Annex residents are considered local traffic, and are (and were) not limited from using Powell Ave. The signs will be removed this fall. We hope to be consulted on any similar measures being considered in the future.
