Last year a group of concerned Verona residents met with South Frontenac Township to discuss issues impacting on our village. From this animated discussion one of the most worrisome issues was the traffic flow through Verona. As a result of this meeting South Frontenac Township hired a firm to study and evaluate the traffic situation and come up with viable solutions. The Verona Corridor Study is now complete and possible solutions have been offered. There will be a public meeting on The Verona Corridor Study on Monday April 7, 7 PM at the Verona Lions Hall. The potential solutions will be made public. You are all invited to attend. Continue to make your voices heard.
