Technical services will one of five council committee meetings and a special meeting of Summerside city council set for Tuesday night, at city hall.
The intersection has been a contentious issue for several years.
It was brought a couple of years ago and the city considered putting in a four-way stop sign but eventually decided against it.
Earlier this year, the city was again asked by residents to install a four-way stop for safety reason and again it was denied.
In April, there was a two-vehicle accident at the intersection which trapped a woman inside her vehicle. Emergency crews needed hydraulic equipment to free her car.
This brought renewed calls for something to be.
Summerside City Councillor Jim Steele said he would bring the issue once again to the technical services committee.
The police services committee will deal with a recommendation about no parking on a section of Greenwood Drive and the community services committee will update its accessibility policy.
Most of the other business before the committees and council will be will be approving tenders.
Municipal works will make recommendations on tenders for a truck, a loader, a snow blower, culverts and patching.
The electric services committee will present tenders for a truck, a trailer and a 2MW generator.
Community services will present a tender for a Zamboni.
A special meeting of city council will follow the committee meetings to deal with the tender recommendations.
The meetings begin at 5 p.m. and are open to the public.
