City staff have advised that the pedestrian bridge construction will be delayed a couple weeks as they wait for some metal fabrication. Once they get the metal components, it won’t take much to finish up. Work on the storm sewer outfall project continues in the meantime. The plan is to reopen the Metamora trail access after slope remediation is concluded.
In the meantime, please don’t take the fencing off the post where it says trail closed. That section of trail is going to be realigned and closed and revegetated as part of this project due to the erosion on the Creek side of the trail. Please let nature restore it.
Please also stay on the actual trail when you are in the Valley. The actual trails are marked with a yellow arrow on trees. Be a guardian of the Medway, stay on the main trail, follow the yellow arrows.
There are been some recent vehicle break ins in the neighborhood. Two vehicles were reported to have been broken into last week in the area of Longbow and Wychwood, and a vehicle was stolen from near the Annadale side of Sherwood Forest Park. Remember to lock your vehicle when it’s left outside.
The City of London has started community consultation for the new Mobility Master Plan – a plan that will determine how we build our streets, sidewalks, bike lanes, transit routes and paths for the next 25 years.
They want to hear what it’s like for you to move around the city, from one place or activity to another. Let the City know what would make your daily trips easier and how we can improve by sharing your mobility experience with us today!
The clock is ticking to submit your idea through the City’s Neighbourhood Decision Making program! With the submission deadline approaching on April 29 at 4:30 p.m., you are encouraged to begin your idea submission if you haven’t already.
Londoners of any age can share ideas for enhancements, events or activities they would like to see in their local neighbourhood through Get Involvedhttps://getinvolved.london.ca/NDM for a chance to make those ideas a reality with support from the City. Ideas may include outdoor movie equipment, barbeque stations in parks, block parties, cultural heritage interpretative signage, new playground swings, community information boards, community electric vehicle charging stations, and bike racks, to name a few. Londoners can find more examples of ideas on Get Involved, but we encourage Londoners to submit their own ideas since they know their neighbourhoods best. The winning ideas can be allotted up to $30,000 in funding.
You are encouraged to submit an idea or to share this great opportunity with your network.
