If you own property west of Huron Street or use those roads and laneways to access the beach, you need to be at this meeting one week from today – Wednesday August 31, 5 to 7 pm in the Coliseum Annex in Southampton.
In response to the concerns of some residents regarding plans to ‘improve’ Chantry View Drive, this Open House has been arranged by Town staff. However this meeting will not deal exclusively with Chantry View, but will outline how road infrastructure improvement projects are selected and prioritized by Saugeen Shores, and accordingly will provide some indication of plans for the various small roads and laneways located west of Huron St. between the river and Bay Street.
Many residents have been surprised in the past couple of years (a) when Adelaide St. was widened, repaved, curbed and pushed through eastward to the highway and (b) when Bay St. was widened, repaved and curbed from McNabb to the lake. In a similar manner some residents of Chantry View have been surprised to learn of 'improvements' to their street proposed for this fall.
It is well established that wider roads lead to faster vehicle speeds. Hence many residents of this entire area would prefer that these streets remain unimproved so that they continue to be pedestrian and bicycle oriented. So come and express your opinion. It will affect future planning for this area.
