Quispamsis Threatened With Court Action

The town of Quispamsis is being threatened with court action if it doesn't reopen Autumn Avenue which has been closed off to traffic for 29 years. 

Susan Buckley, speaking on behalf of the Ken Valley Co-op and other nearby businesses, told councillors the original bylaw is invalid because it doesn't stipulate whether the street closure is temporary or permanent.

Residents along Autumn Avenue say they have no sidewalks and they're worried about the influx of traffic, arguing a sub division should not be used as an access road to an industrial park. 

On the other hand, People from Granite Drive and Alabaster Drive spoke in favour of opening up Autumn Avenue because they say their streets are being used as drag strips with too much speeding.
