Concerns growing in Black Creek as storm season nears

Dear editor,

I am establishing a petition to hopefully bring about a change to get Macaulay Road in Black Creek to go through to Hamm Road.

Dear editor,

I am establishing a petition to hopefully bring about a change to get Macaulay Road in Black Creek to go through to Hamm Road.

We have been complaining for a long time now with no results.

As storm season approaches again, concern grows.

I am a small business owner near the end of Macaulay Road. My business is toddlers and infants — Little Seedlings Licenced Family Daycare.

Parents bring safety issues to my attention. The road is a 15-kilometre dead-end road. One way in, one way out.

Frequent storms bring down trees and heavy snow, which has left us stranded from and stranded at home with no water, power, heat for three days!

I am licenced for seven children. God forbid a medical emergency that the ambulance could not get to us due to construction, trees down, heavy snow, earthquake, fire.

We need to have this road go through soon, as storm season approaches fast. The end of Macaulay and Hamm roads are only one or two kilometres in distance.

We need the road to go through now.

Rachel Lohman-Fredbeck,

Black Creek
