Re Nail Pond Shore Road

We, the tax paying residents of rural PEI, propose that the mere .5 km stretch of unpaved residential roadway and public beach access, be upgraded to a paved surface with proper ditching.

Annual maintenance cost savings would be realized on upkeep of this stretch of road with the elimination of calcium chloride applications for dust control , multiple surface gradings and road repairs due to washouts.

There are 5 year round residences and 12 seasonal residences on this stretch of road. Red clay roads may be quite scenic, but during periods of mild weather in the winter, excessive rainfall in the summer and spring thaw, this road becomes virtually impassable. If there were ever an emergency such that an ambulance or fire truck were needed in this area at these times, it would be uncertain that these services could be provided.

The road is a valuable asset and a basic municipal service for our small community. With an unpaved road, not only is the safety of permanent and seasonal residents at risk, but access to the public beach is compromised and this greatly impacts the tourism industry and real estate sales in the area.

Please show your support for residents of rural PEI by signing this petition.
