Sign needed to designate ‘Berkey’s Corner’
Dear mayor and council:
This is a follow-up to my previous suggestion about erecting a street- or way-finding sign at our famous and busy Berkey’s Corner.
Kind response from our mayor and other councillors signalled a willingness to erect a long-overdue sign at Berkey’s.
Of course, that corner is now a roundabout, but signage for the informally named spot — known to generations of locals as Berkey’s Corner — is still needed.
In fact, I believe the mayor suggested council could approach developers of the adjacent 49th Parallel complex — now reaching completion — about erecting such a Berkey’s sign.
That would be fine with me. Conversely, I’d welcome a council decision to simply plant an attractive municipal sign to formally name the historic ‘corner’ for locals, first responders and tourists alike.
Thanks for your kind consideration.
