The residents have expressed concern that the hill portion of St. Mark's Road, between Humbercrest Boulevard and Varsity Road, may not be safe for road users during winter conditions. There have been recent reported collisions where cars have skidded off the road. Many children use the hill to get to area schools and the residents have asked for a solution to keep pedestrians using the sidewalk on the north side of the road safe during winter.
