The City of Armstrong is taking a petition for a new crosswalk under consideration.

A petition for a new cross walk was submitted to the City of Armstrong to help seniors safely cross the street to the pharmacy at 2805 Smith Dr.

Coun. Lance McGregor put forward a motion recommendation to share the funding with property owners.

“The public works manager has talked to some property owners,” said Mayor Chris Pieper. “They’re willing to join to fund the project, so we should have a motion to proceed.”
