Signs have been placed in mailboxes along and around Gore Street for the notice of a road closure tomorrow from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. and it is already causing problems.
Only an hour after the metal road closure signs were placed on Albert Street near and about Andrew intersection, they have already been hit by motorists causing damage to their vehicles.
Also one local business is upset by the lack of notice given to businesses and residents in the area:
“Nice to be informed 24 hours in advance that Gore Street will be closed…If no one on the street was informed of this until today, who is participating in this event? How is it beneficial for the neighbourhood? Saturdays are usually the busiest day of the week at the cafe and a last minute street closure announcement will undoubtedly affect business – not just for me, but for the other businesses on the street. This could have been mitigated by more advance notice, and, ideally including the community in the planning. How will we be compensated? There is no contact information to direct questions to on the notice and no information on the event,” says Nicole Dyble of Gore Street Cafe.
Editor’s Note: The reason for the street closure is here.
