Roundabout sculpture a likely target

Funds set aside for roundabout design might be better used elsewhere.

Re: Roundabout design.

Dear sirs/madams,

The large roundabout on Highway 97A is a welcome feature that will not only solve our traffic problem there, but will also add an attractive feature to our community.  However, we have a number of concerns regarding the proposed $300,000 added expense of the concept design.

It has been known to happen on occasion in other areas where distracted drivers have plowed or driven through the centre of them, creating a maintenance/repair situation for the community.

It would seem that something more consistent with our town’s nautical theme would be more appropriate than this concept, which has the appearance of a futuristic Stonehenge.

All those walls would seem to be a graffiti magnet.

These considerable available funds we feel could be better spent on new or existing community features/projects that have been struggling for funding for years, such as the pavilion at the beach park, sidewalks, etc.
