Traffic and Parking Management Plan

Background

New Horizons School is a growing school. The school we occupy was originally built as a neighborhood school in which students could walk, take their bikes, or take a short bus ride. However, NHS  is in a unique situation in that it is not a neighborhood school – students come to our school from varying distances resulting in a situation where a large portion of our students are driven to and from school.

Consequently, the increased volume of drivers has resulted in a parking and traffic situation that causes much congestion, especially at pick-up time after school. Because of the volume of traffic, please know that pick -up time will be slow. Our Traffic and Parking Management Plan can only do so much.

Collaboration 

New Horizons School, Strathcona County, Traffic Enforcement and Elk Island Transportation, continue to work closely together to try to keep the streets around NHS safe, non-congested as possible, and as least disruptive for our neighbors as possible.

Traffic Study

In the spring of 2018, Strathcona Council requested that  a traffic study around our school because of the volume of residential complaints. Our Traffic and Parking Management Plan is a collaborative response to the study that was presented to Council in September.
