You may have seen a Trail Closure notice at the Metamora bridge in the Medway. We have already indicated to the city staff involved that the community supports repairing the bridge. However, because the bridge has been deemed structurally unstable, the City is required to close approaches to the bridge. We have been told that the area shown on the map that is closed includes the entrance to the Valley that is behind the Monastery because the City cannot direct users to private properties.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact city staff directly as per the information on the attached, or we can pass along comments and replies.

There will be a clean-up in our area at Fanshawe Park Road where the bridge crosses Medway Creek. That clean-up will start at 9 am on April 27. For more info see http://www.thamesrivercleanup.ca/

What happens next remains to be seen. Thanks to those of you who expressed your views to members of Council. Councillor Squire worked very hard on our behalf.
