Sidewalk at 48 and Aurora Rd
With the new complex at Highway 48 and Aurora being completed, has there been any discussion about putting in a sidewalk from our Ballantrae entrance to the complex? We notice quite a few seniors now walking on the side of Highway 48 to get to Tim Hortons and eventually the doctors offices that are going in. For a safety perspective.
Funds to pay for the sidewalk install were put into the Town’s approved 2021 Capital Budget. Arrangements have just been confirmed with Ballymore (new home building site) to have them grade the length of the front of their property such that the sidewalk can be installed by the town.
We await word from MTO as to how far back/wide the setback from the highway must be to accommodate the project.
I have coordinated an on-site meeting with town staff, new plaza owner and company constructing the facility at the Aurora-Hwy 48 corner to determine where and how the sidewalk will be incorporated into their buildout plan.
