The future of a pedestrian safety project in Lake Country is still unknown.

 

The future of a pedestrian safety project in Lake Country is still unknown.

Council continues to consider $25,000 to continue the pedestrian pathway northwards up Bond Road and to straighten the pathway section at the intersection of Davidson and Bond roads.

“It will be considered as part of the 2012 budget,” said Mayor James Baker.

The project is primarily directed towards children walking to and from Davidson Road Elementary School.

Baker admits that there are similar demands across the municipality to improve pedestrian safety.

“Our standing policy is to put aside money every year for these situations,” he said.

“Areas around schools are the important ones.”
