Dear Ed­i­tor; re: South Hill Turnout

It is very good news to hear that a turnout and park­ing area will be de­vel­oped at the south en­trance into Drumheller. Many tourists are stop­ping at the Drumheller sign to take photos and they should have a safe place to pull off High­way 9 and park. We did have a rea­son­ably de­cent place to pull off and park un­til some­one made the de­ci­sion to ex­ca­vate the pave­ment to dis­cour- age tourists from stop­ping there. How­ever the tourists have pre­vailed in spite of the dan­ger­ous drop off and very rough ter­rain. Na­ture has lent a hand in im­prov­ing the area by wash­ing in soil and lev­el­ing the area. It is a very good de­ci­sion to pro­vide a safe pull off and park­ing. It will make the en­trance to Drumheller more at­trac­tive and wel­com­ing to tourists as well as mak­ing it safer. I ap­plaud the Town of Drumheller for the good work they do for us. Ken Leon­hardt
