A Parkvale resident will stage a sit-in on Saturday to protest the lack of traffic calming areas in Red Deer’s oldest neighbourhood.

A Parkvale resident will stage a sit-in on Saturday to protest the lack of traffic calming areas in Red Deer’s oldest neighbourhood.

Brandon Bouchard will set up a patio table and chairs and umbrella at the intersection of 45th Street and 46th Avenue, starting at 9 a.m.

He plans to stay until “I’m forcibly removed, killed or I get hungry.”

The community of Parkvale has a number of playground zones and uncontrolled intersections.

Bouchard said he’s witnessed drivers speeding through these areas without a thought to what’s around the corner, or who’s about to cross the street to play on the swings.

With the help of the Parkvale community association, Bouchard plans to canvass the neighbourhood soon with a petition to seek traffic calming measures.

For more information, go to Bouchard’s blog at http://parkvaleneighbor.tumblr.com.
