DEPUTATION
  • Hume Street Reconstruction Neighbors and Friends re: Use of COLLUS Share Sale Proceeds
Mr. Mark Palmer, Greenland Engineering, addressed Council on behalf of Hume Street neighbours and friends. Mr. Palmer reviewed studies undertaken to date on the importance of the reconstruction of Hume Street as it is has been identified as a gateway into the community.   Mr. Palmer noted the support for the Admiral Collingwood Place project and that the reconstruction of Hume Street could be a catalyst of this project to move forward.
 
Mr. Palmer requested Council consider the Hume Street project when deciding on the use of the Collus share funds.  He noted that not all the funds would be required to complete this project, which addresses many social, environmental and economical concerns along this area.   
 
Mr. Scott Strandholt, Bay Haven Nursing Home, addressed Council expressing concerns with mobility issues, the need for sidewalks, rolled curbs and safe pedestrian walkways and access to the rest of the community are ongoing issues along Hume Street, and the east end in particular. The lack of sidewalks is difficult for all the employees and citizens that use that corridor.  Mr. Strandholt encourages Councillors to visit the nursing home and local businesses in the area to experience the concerns and issues with Hume Street.   
 
Deputy Mayor Lloyd, Public Works Liaison, reviewed the detailed status of the project, the required upgrades and reconstruction of Hume Street and cost of $9.2M to complete the project. 
 
Council agreed to consider their request when reviewing the use of the Collus share funds and suggested that possibly the Town and Hospital Board could make a presentation to the Province with respect to the significance of this project for government funding assistance.
