CLOSED: This discussion has concluded.

We live on Bushmills Crescent (10 years) and have found Candlewood Drive to be VERY congested between the North end of Bushmills Crescent and Paisley Road since the condos along the South side Paisley Road were built. Vehicles belonging to residents/visitors of these condos, as well as the homes along the West side of Candlewood Drive, are parked along both the West and East side Candlewood Drive at all hours daily. This makes turning left and/or right, off Bushmills Crescent onto Candlewood Drive, and turning off Paisley Road onto Candlewood Drive very difficult and also to drive down Candlewood Drive very difficult and congested. It also becomes much more difficult and congested when there are multiple vehicles stopped at the end of Candlewood Drive at Paisley Road waiting to make a turn onto Paisley Road. I have had to avoid a collision multiple times while driving West on Candlewood Drive, towards Paisley Road, as vehicles turning onto Candlewood Drive off Paisley Road do so not aware of the vehicles parked along both the West and East side Candlewood Drive and there is not enough room for both vehicles. There is also a slight bend on Candlewood Drive at Paisley Road which adds to the above mentioned issues.
There are also pedestrian safety concerns. There is a catwalk leading to Deerpath Park on Candlewood Drive within this area (the North end of Bushmills Crescent and Paisley Road) that many local residents, including families with children and pets, use daily.

We would propose that parking along the West and East sides of Candlewood Drive, between the North end of Bushmills Crescent and Paisley Road, be terminated during this construction period.
