Be heard on Sidney’s Beacon Avenue

The Town of Sidney is embarking on a public process to decide the fate of Beacon Avenue.

The Town of Sidney is embarking on a public process to decide the fate of Beacon Avenue. Forms are available at town hall so people can express their views on the matter.

A small but spirited group in town is promoting a change to two way traffic from Second Street to Fifth Street and are actively lobbying their case. I believe this will increase congestion in that corridor and do nothing to promote the businesses. Furthermore, there are no metrics on how this change would affect traffic flow.

If you believe the status quo should prevail, in other words that Beacon Avenue remain one way, it is important that your views be heard in this debate. Pick up a form at town hall (soon to be available at Sidney.ca online) and register your opinion between now and February, 2014.

Complacency could lead to the change. Silence is consent!

Brian Losie, Sidney
