Slow down on Golf Club Road in East Hawkesbury!

On April 12, East Hawkesbury Township Council approved reducing the speed limit on the road, which runs between Highway 17 and Front Road, from 60 kilometres per hour to 50 kilometres per hour.

A resident had written a letter to the township requesting an electronic speed radar sign be installed, but council instead decided to reduce the speed limit.

In addition to providing access to the Hawkesbury Golf Club, Golf Club Road is a popular connecting route, which passes through a residential area.


Council also discussed future improvements to the road, including resurfacing plans.

Centre d’Action work heating up

According to East Hawkesbury Chief Administrative Officer Luc Lalonde, work is gradually progressing on the $130,000 project to replace the heating system at the Centre d’Action community centre in Sainte-Anne-de Prescott.

Lalonde told council that $25,000 is currently being spent on having an installation plan developed for the new system.

Previously, $6,000 had been spent on having a contractor perform the engineering services for the project.
