The areas XXX'd in the diagram are not streets, but green spaces beside them. What exactly does this even say. I get it that the town will now develop these green space areas, but what exactly are the road closures. These maps do not show clearly that certain streets that are now in use will be closed or when.
Hi Cindy, The hatched areas on the map represent the road's right of way, which is more than just a street. In almost all cases, these areas already contain a flood berm that currently sits on Province of Alberta land. These lands need to be transferred to the Town of Drumheller, and this process includes going through a Road Closure Bylaw. In all three Bylaws (11.22, 12.22, 13.22), there are only two pieces of travelled surfaces proposed to be closed to traffic: the alley behind 1404 and 1408 Newcastle Trail, and the entrance to Newcastle Park that goes directly to the dog park. This still leaves one entrance to the park. Please don't hesitate to reach out with any additional questions.
