The City of Powell River is hosting three workshops next week on an upcoming street safety project.
The Maple and Sycamore Safety Streets Project’s goal is to build traffic calming measures on Maple Avenue and Sycamore Street in Townsite, providing a safer way for children to get to school.
The project was funded by a BC Active Transportation Infrastructure Grant of $357,000 from the province, with another $153,000 funded by Powell River Community Forest.
As a way to continue the project’s progress, three workshops will be held with a consulting engineer talking about what the project includes.
The workshops will also give residents the opportunity to discuss the plan, in the hopes of turning it from a concept to a finalized project.
The first workshop will focus on the Arbutus to Aspen segment from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm, the second on Aspen to Elm from 6:30 to 8:30, and the third from Elm to Hemlock, also from 6:30 to 8:30.
These workshops will take place in the Dwight Hall on Tuesday April 11th and finish on Wednesday April 12th.
