‘Shop South Glengarry’ promo
BY SCOTT CARMICHAEL
Staff South Glengarry council has opted for a three-pronged attack to address ongoing parking issues on Lancaster’s main street.
The plan – endorsed by council November 5 – calls for development of a downtown/main street township’s economic development officer and tourism promotions coordinator, told following the council meeting.
“Overall, it was a very positive presentation with lots of great feedback and comments.”
Then-councillor Trevor Bougie brought the parking issue to coun- that administration had discussed the problem.
According to a staff report prepared by Mrs. Baggs for that meeting, the development of a new “Shop South Glengarry” brand, and accompanying signage along Military Road “indicating complimentary parking” will be among the priorities of the parking improvement project.
The number of signs required has yet to be determined, but Mrs. Baggs has estimated that each sign and portable base would cost approximately $100.
In addition, the township, along with the United Counties of Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry, will work together to have parking lines painted in the appropriate areas in the spring/summer of 2019. Administration will also create and distribute a flyer “indicating the importance of available customer parking along the main street and alternative options for employers and their staff,” once the branding initiative is complete.
