Mayor Strauss, Councilor Bauman, Woolwich Council, and Regional Chair Ken Seiling,
We respectfully request that a flashing light crosswalk be considered on King Street in St Jacobs at the High Crest intersection.
King Street is extremely busy in St Jacobs, and it is almost impossible for children to cross without the assistance of the crossing guard. Even the crossing guard has recently acquired a flashing cone to place in the middle of the road while she is on duty because the High Crest/King intersection is on the crest of a down hill decent into the village and drivers often don
My name is Sandi Bromberg, and I am a parent of 3 children who attend St. Jacobs school here in the village of St. Jacobs. With my children growing up, they are becoming involved in before and after school activities. This means that they are walking to and from school outside of the hours that the crossing guard is employed to make sure that they get across a very busy King Street safely. Therefore, I have sent letters to the Township of Woolwich and to the Regional of Waterloo, requesting that a pedestrian activated flashing light crosswalk be installed at Highcrest and king streets to ensure everyone is able to cross King St. safely at any hour. Please join me by adding your name to the petition request. Keep our kids safe!
