As part of our annual parks capital budget for electrical rehabilitation, the town is proposing a new project within Sheridan Hills Park. As you may know, Sheridan Hills Park is part of a significant open space area and includes the two adjacent schools — Holy Family Elementary School and Sheridan Public School. The town has recently upgraded the asphalt pathways within this park and is now considering a further upgrade to the path system.
Today, there are five existing pedestrian lights located at the end of various walkways leading into the park; these walkways lead to Franklin Court, Jutland Place, Fairbanks Place, Huntley Court and Hastings Road. Aside from these isolated locations, the balance of the park pathways is unlit. These existing light fixtures are scheduled for replacement and before proceeding with this minor maintenance operation, the town would like to poll the community on a new, but related, project.
The town has developed a plan that would see the installation of approximately 40 new light fixtures (similar to those already installed) and completing continuous path lighting between Grand Boulevard, Grosvenor Street, and Lancaster Street. The town is considering this proposal for a number of reasons, including greater accessibility and better visibility within the park area.
The town has consulted with Halton Regional Police Service and believe that the proposal offers an enhanced level of safety within the local neighbourhood and we would like to hear your feedback on this proposal. We have attached a small map of the park area in question, and have also posted our proposed electrical plans on the Sheridan Hills Park development page.
