Wayne Conway, a director of the Verona Community Association sent in the following information. 30 people braved the extremely cold night to attend the township's Road 38 Corridor Study meeting. The presentations were well done and all questions were answered. The full report is on the Township website for a short period of time for those who wish to view it. Log onto http://www.southfrontenac.net Click on" Living Here" and then click on "Roads and Parking." In the short term, there will be some implementations made in 2015. New traffic speed controls with flashing lights for the school will be installed. The speed limit will be 40 km/hr for the safety of students during morning entry, lunch break and afternoon departure, otherwise the speed will be posted 50 km. Several 60 Km signs will be moved further South beyond Foodland. The Township will replace some speed signs with larger ones. Chevrons placed at the South from Foodland will mark a change in speed. It was also proposed that Road 38 dividing line would change to having a centre line with no on-street parking in the core of the village. This would be studied for feasibility if implemented. All in all, the meeting had very positive feedback and lots of ideas were suggested.
