Following discussions at various council meetings, Comox council will formally examine speeding within the town.
The issue of speeding has been discussed by various councillors for specific areas of Comox and the larger area, however, at the Feb. 17 meeting, council formally approved that a report be provided on the best ways to holistically address speeding on town streets.
Coun. Alex Bissinger inquired about a traffic study being worked on by Shelley Ashfield, the town’s director of operations.
“I would consider those two separate items to move forward,” noted Ashfield. “The transportation study that we’re doing now is pretty much edits. We touch on traffic calming, but this is taking it to a different level so they’re two separate reports.”
Telus seeking approval for expansion
Telus is seeking approval from Comox to expand its wireless cellular coverage within the town.
According to Scadacore.com, a website displaying Canadian cell tower maps across any geographical location in the country, Telus has the majority of its towers in the southeastern part of the town.
There is a gap in towers between the Comox Valley Airport east on Knight Road and south on Lazo Road, with minimal towers between Pritchard, Lazo and Knight Roads.
