County Rd 21 changes overdue
To the Editor,
The councillors on the Haliburton County planning committee should be commended for recognizing and attempting to deal with the problems associated with County Road 21 as it enters Haliburton Village.
Our county could well be the least senior friendly community in Ontario. There is very little affordable housing, few safe to walk on sidewalks, no swimming pool and no senior centre. Paradoxically Haliburton County is by age the oldest Census Division in Canada*.
We are who we are and making the village safer and more pedestrian friendly for our future and the generations to come is a wonderful plan.
