Re: South Lakeside Drive and Highway 20 intersection, and the road leading up to Walmart and Prosperity Ridge.
After spending some time in reflection on last year’s frustrated dealing with Mayor Kerry Cook and manager of engineering services Geoff Goodall, it occurred to me if the City of Williams Lake was interested in doing what is best for all concerned that the city mayor and council would put out a questionnaire asking city residents a couple of very basic questions.
1. Are you happy with the present intersection from Highway 20 to Hodgson Road? Yes or no.
2. Do you wish the City of Williams Lake would start rebuilding present intersections and a road to Prosperity Ridge before an alternate route into and out of Prosperity Ridge is built? Yes or no.
For the safety of residents and businesses on South Lakeside Drive, also for more cost-effective construction with minimal traffic intereference.
I do not wish the City to spend more money on South Lakeside Drive until the road out of Prosperity Ridge, as originally planned, is built.
