Some Lavington residents want to close down their road to the public.
Warren Road residents want to limit traffic to residents only, saying the road was only designed to meet the needs of the four homes and is not suitable for commercial use due to safety concerns for pedestrians and vehicles.
“The road is very narrow and already in need of major repair,” said Roxanne Ronan, representing residents of the No-Thru road north of Buchanan Road.
A major concern for residents is the use of the road by Coldstream Ranch to access the Keefer Gulch pasture for bio-solid distribution.
“The road will not safely allow two-way passage of tanker vehicles,” said Ronan, presenting an eight-signature petition to Coldstream council to limit traffic.
Resident Peter Heidema adds: “There’s no doubt that increased heavy traffic will quickly destroy the remaining integrity of the roadway surface.”
Staff are investigating the roadway situation and will report back to council at the next meeting, Aug. 26. Options are expected into a mechanism to control traffic.
“Obviously it’s not built for that kind of traffic,” said Coun. Gyula Kiss.
