Our readers voted "Velociraptor" as their favourite name for Bell Street. This chart show the top five picks after 200 votes.

Our survey won’t carry any weight at City Hall when it comes to making the final choices.  Only homeowners on the streets in question have an official vote.  (About 80% of respondents to our survey do not live on the affected streets.)

Some neighbours on Bell Street are hoping to connect in person this week to talk about options for their street. “Hopefully we can come together on something and get to know each other a little better,” wrote one neighbour on a local Facebook group. (If you live on Bell Street, you can get in touch via Facebook.)

 

MORE RESULTS OF OUR SURVEY

Residents could pick from dozens of names for each street. These pie charts show only the top choices on each street, after about 200 votes cast.  You can cast your vote here…

(Come to think of it, with so many names to choose from, this would have been a good opportunity to test out ranked ballot voting!)

Over on Elm Street, "Twig" and "Kawartha" are in the lead, but only slightly.
For Elm Crescent, “Twig” and “Kawartha” are in the lead, but not by much.

  1. Interesting idea to let people vote on the new names. Only problem is that we had to vote for all 5 streets.

    Personally, I put some thought in the choice for MY street, and didn’t really care about the others.

    Would have preferred to skip them, but the system forced me to vote for them as well.

  2. BTW, 33 residents of Elm Crescent are participating in an unofficial poll to select the most acceptable name for our crescent.

    At the end of Round #2, the leaders were Cape Cod, Star, Brae, Milkweed, and Kawartha.

    We have 3 more rounds to go, declaring the winner on October 3.
