The city is inviting you to an open house next week to talk about the road along Highway 19A.
It wants to talk about current road use on Highway 19A, between 5th Avenue and 6th Avenue.
It also wants to discuss options for future use in the area.
Director of Operations Drew Hadfield says the city is taking feedback from the public to look at options for the road.
“The available space is not wide enough to accommodate two standard travel lanes, parking on both sides, and bike lanes on both sides. We’re looking to the public to share their priorities, so we can make decisions that best suit road use for the area,” said Hadfield.
The city says the road currently has one travel lane in each direction, with parking on both sides.
Unlike the stretch to the south of this block, there is no formal bike lanes and cyclists and motorists are directed to share the travel lane.
At the drop-in open house, there will be information about transportation planning in the area, as well as options for revised plans and an opportunity to provide feedback and ask questions.
The session will take place next Wednesday between 5:00pm to 7:00pm at the Maritime Heritage Centre.
If you can’t make it to the session, a survey will be available on the city’s website here.
