Use driveway into former transfer station on the 7th Lineto the editor,
Posted March 13, 2017
I have lived for 25 years on Sideroad 10, on the north side of the Town of New Tecumseth-owned bush that has been a contentious issue for a few years.
It has come to my attention that the Town is spending my/our
tax dollars on having a survey and feasibility study done to determine
if they want to spend thousands more dollars on constructing a parking
lot at the west entrance to the bush.
At present, there are two parking spaces for the bush at its west entrance and frequently extra cars park on the northbound and southbound shoulders creating a visual distraction for oncoming traffic, as there is a significant bend in the road just south of the bush entrance.
Last Sunday (March 5th) there were 10 cars parked on the east side of
the road north of my driveway.
This would provide a safer, alternate entrance to the bush and would eliminate the dangerous parking on the increasingly busy 10th Sideroad.
How this couldn't possibly prove to be a more practical and
cost-effective solution has yet to be explained to me.
