Financial House in Order
Over and over the town has demonstrated that it cannot manage small to medium projects without going over budget and wasting tax payer dollars. This is a facade project to improve curbside appeal, but let us get our financial house in order prior to spending countless and crazy dollars. All we have heard from this mayor is how much policing costs, and that it is too expensive and now we want to do a major redesign of our main street, where will the extra costs come from.....us
I do not think it is a good idea to decrease parking along Main St. It is bad for business. I also do not appreciate the reduction in lanes along Main St as it is confusing, increases traffic and pointless (especially from Edward to Thompson). Why lose 2 useful traffic lanes to offer trees and flowers in planters instead? Also, how much will it cost to bury the hydro lines and are there benefits other than esthetic? I already pay A LOT in taxes to the town of Penetanguishene and I DO NOT want them to increase in order to finance this impractical and unnecessary Main St re-design.
