There are three areas of concern that I can see;
- Seventh Street remains unpaved, many years after the petition was presented to stop that project.
- Part of every Avenue (except First Avenue and Fifth Avenue) are unpaved.
- Beacon Heights Road south from the entrance to Beacon Heights to the junction with First Avenue is full of potholes, washboard, and generates a huge amount of dust every summer despite the very best effort of our Public Works department.
With those figures in hand, we will be able to create a priority list for the improvements.
Our sidewalk rehabilitation program is almost complete, with very few sections left to replace. I would like to see a portion of our streets improvement program (which is funded by the provincial government) set aside for paving.
I will also propose council meet with the residents along Seventh Street to discuss their street, and the cost of that project. Nothing should be done to improve that street until the majority of folks who live there agree.
