"The Okanagan Mission Review Summer 2013" publication recently highlighted the AME Sidewalk Initiative in a couple articles. Kelowna Mayor Walter Gray dedicated two pages in this issue (p.8&9) to this topic. He stated that on "May 27, council and city staff had a lengthy and wide ranging discussion about road safety and sidewalk infrastructure in Okanagan Mission. Some creative potential solutions for the area around Anne McClymont school came out of that discussion. Staff was charged with refocusing on this urgent need. The outside-the-box discussion produced some new ideas and staff will report back to council in the weeks ahead."
It is encouring that Council is taking this issue seriously and looking for timely solutions. Safety is a real concern for the parents of children attending Anne McClymont Elementary. This concern will continue to be pursued until a viable and safe solution has been successfully implemented surrounding this area of Lakeshore Road.
