Pelmewash options to be presented Tuesday in Lake Country

Public invited to come out from 5 to 7 p.m. Tuesday to see Pelmewash Parkway options

The public is invited to see the options that will be up for debate for the future of Pelmewash Parkway on Tuesday night at the Lake Country municipal hall.

It’s the final chance for Lake Country residents to give input on the future design of Pelmewash Parkway at a meeting where consultants will present an overview of the project using ideas submitted by the public and the District of Lake Country.

“It’s a summation of the various features or options that the public has come up with and was presented as an overview of the various features of the parkway as its proposed,” said Mark Koch, DLC director of planning. “The idea is to come away with a concept plan for the future of the parkway.”

After the final consultation is over the next step will be to present the conceptual plan to Lake Country council some time this year.

“There is a number of stages in this process,” said Koch. “This is the concept plan, then you move forward to a more detailed design looking to how the concept can be accommodated. Then you have to come up with the funding for the plan. Once you have the concept plan it’s quite helpful in approaching other levels of government for funding opportunities and grants.”
