Why Wait Till Spring, Do It Now Port Stanley

Remember that phrase "Why Wait Till Spring, Do It Now", well just take spin around Port, and keep your eyes open for wet concrete, missing sidewalks, potholes in those dug up roads, and if you see construction signs, please slow down, be cautious, look around to make sure it's safe, and take care.

A new sidewalk repair job over by the TD Bank machine at the corner of Joseph Street, and Colborne Street, that just seemed to pop up overnight, almost caught me by surprise after using the Bank machine. I was one step away from wet concrete because of not paying attention. Sidewalks are safe places to walk most of the time, except when being repaired. It's this routine change for sidewalk users that causes a problem when repairs are underway, and a simple distraction could lead to a problem, or injury. With sidewalk repairs being done all over Port, the biggest is on Edith Cavell Ave, your normal walking route may have been selected, and extra care would be advised while in the affected areas.

Progress on the Remediation of the Contaminated Harbour Lands seems to be rather slow, with sporadic activity seeing heavy construction equipment lay idle most of the time. At this pace, walls of construction fencing, big holes and red tarps might become a more permanent Port Stanley attraction right into next summer.

But there is some good news on the horizon, one Port project that seems to be almost complete, and looks pretty good too, is the outside wall treatment on the Port Stanley Library, that only needs some ground level brick work to be completed, and then the wall of construction fencing there, can be taken down.

Hofhuis Park is showing off well with the recent grass seeding starting to show green, and the cosmetic landscaping around the pond looking lush. Everyday you go by, the changes show a progressive view, that seems to only get better, making that Hofhuis Park Dream become more of a reality.
