Lumby approves boundary signs

Council unanimously agreed Monday to install a sign on Lumby-Mabel Lake Road

Lumby’s northern border will be identified.

Council unanimously agreed Monday to install a sign on Lumby-Mabel Lake Road between the village and the regional district.

“There wasn’t any discussion among council,” said Coun. Nick Hodge, who pushed for the sign.

“It shows people coming south into the village that they’ve arrived.”

Hodge says there is some confusion as to where the village’s boundary is.

“There’s a line of residences along the road and some are in and some are out, and there’s nothing to show which is which,” he said.

“I wanted to be clear where the village’s services start.”

Council has also agreed to install a speed limit sign for northbound traffic leaving the village on Lumby-Mabel Lake Road.

Hodge says speed north of J.W. Inglis Elementary is perceived by residents to be excessive.
