Re: Highway 20 and South Lakeside Drive.
There are a lot of people living in the area who use the Highway 20/South Lakeside Drive intersection to access businesses on South Lakeside.
The area from Bella Coola to Likely and Horsefly is about 400 miles long. From 100 Mile House to Quesnel the area is about 115 miles wide.
All shoppers going to Canadian Tire, the Real Canadian Wholesale Club, Prosperity Ridge and Wal-Mart, and all other businesses, must travel through the Highway 20/South Lakeside Drive intersection.
Only way in, only way out.
If this situation is not remedied soon South Lakeside residents will be backed up in traffic jams morning and evening, every day, 365 days a year; possibly all day long.
Now is the time to voice your opinion.
The City of Williams Lake is planning to spend more money on South Lakeside Drive, a waste of tax payers money.
I cannot comprehend the city’s determination to continue with plans on South Lakeside Drive, when the city knows Joe Fetters Jr. has approximately 30 to 40 lots to develop, Pioneer has 250 to 350 residential lots, plus more land to develop.
There could be three times more commercial traffic than we now have.
Plus there are more empty lots to be developed in city limits on south Lakeside, plus future higher density apartments, townhouses etc.
Please, could someone from city explain to this old cowboy what I am missing?
I would like to know how you figure on making South Lakeside Drive better, safer, faster, etc.
