February 2015 Transportation for Tomorrow Report to Council.

During the public input process in 2013 an on-line survey was created so residents could share their thoughts and questions about the Transportation for Tomorrow plan.

We’ve all heard a lot about “infrastructure” problems lately.  As we bump over the potholes and patches in our Lake Country roads it is easly to feel frustrated and wonder — “Why don’t ‘they’ do something?”

Ironically ‘they’ — your local public works or Roads department — are probably equally frustrated by increased costs, budget reductions and deferred maintenance; and ‘they’ probably are as anxious as you to do somthing.

Unfortunately, neither the media buzz on infrastructure nor finger pointing will solve our community’s roads infrastructure problem.  Real, long term, solutions can only come from a committed and cooperative effort by informed citizens and local public officials in conjunction with District Engineering staff and contractors.  Difficult decisions have to be made and tough priorities set.

TRANSPORTATION FOR TOMORROW is the long term solution we believe we are all looking for.  Thanks for taking the time to review the informative resources below.

Read what it’s all about. This brochure will be delivered to mailboxes throughout Lake Country the week of November 25th, 2013.
