What’s Happening – Fighting Gridlock

 

Gridlock is a major concern amongst our business owners in DUKE Heights, and to address this problem, we have made a new partnership to work on this issue for our members. We have partnered with the Pembina Institute to create a Neighborhood Freight Forum (NFF). This Forum will be made up of business owners and operators within DUKE Heights, as well as area stakeholders and government representatives, who will all be working together to address problems around freight and delivery management within DUKE Heights.
The NFF will be meeting twice a year, over the next 3 years, to address and identify issues in goods management like parking and traffic congestion. The Forum will engage with experts and City staff to create and test working solutions to these issues within DUKE Heights. The goal of creating this forum is to work together to create solutions that will decrease operating costs for businesses, decrease greenhouse gas emissions in our neighborhood and help make DUKE Heights an even better place to work, shop and play.
We will be kicking off our Neighborhood Freight Forum with a launch event on

April 27th from 12:00pm – 3:00pm

and we hope to see many of you there.
If you are interested in participating in the Neighborhood Freight Forum, would like to be an anchor member of this committee, or would just like more information, please contact us at leah@dukeheights.ca for more information or register at
