Friendship Centre asks for crosswalk – Alberta Daily Herald Tribune

The Grande Prairie Friendship Centre met with members of the community safety committee meeting on Tuesday to request a crosswalk be placed before or near the centre for the safety of children attending the organization’s Aboriginal Head Start program downtown at 10105-97 Ave.

“It was important for us to get the crosswalk for safety for the children and the pedestrians on that street. It’s a highly used street. There’s a high traffic volume and there’s pedestrians on that street as well,” said Delaine Lambert-English co-chair of the Aboriginal Head Start Parent Advisory Circle.

“The vehicles that go down that street tend to go quite fast and I honestly don’t think they realize that there is a pre-school in that building. Perhaps if they knew that they would slow down and be more cautious.”
