My intention with this letter is to voice my concerns to the Town of Ponoka about the poor condition of most of the sidewalks and approaches in our downtown core.
Having such a large amount of residents in our community who use walking-assistant devices such as walkers, wheelchairs, canes and visually-impaired white canes, I hope may concerns are given great attention.
I, along with many other residents, take great strides in keeping our independence. Broken roads and sidewalks, uneven and high approaches make this difficult to achieve.
Accessible businesses cause difficulty as well; one example is Bibles for Missions. I would like to be able to support such a charity and I would benefit due to my minimal income.
I also wonder about installing chirping at our downtown lights for the crosswalk systems.
