The Greystones Municipal Councillors decided on Tuesday how to spend the once off fund for local improvements which has resulted from the Non Principle Private Residence tax collected:
- In Burnaby Park the surface of the central path is to be improved and lighting is to be provided.
- Most Zebra Pedestrian crossings in the area are to have improved lighting to make them safer. This will be similar to the lighting on the ones in Kilcoole and Killincarrick.
- Better surfaces will be provided on the pedestrian paths in Newcastle Park and next to Burnaby Heights.
- Improved fencing will be provided in Kilcoole at Sea Road and another place.
‘I pressed for this money to used for a permanent improvement rather than going into a general fund and am pleased this has happened. The Burnaby Park path is heavily used, as it is a route from the DART, and it is in poor condition with wheelchair users having fallen sideways from it. The new surface and lights will be a big improvement’.
