Derry looks at what to do with roads once private
Councilor Mark Osborne brought up the issue at a recent Town Council meeting, noting that he had been contacted by several residents of Hilda Avenue concerned about the state of their road.
Fowler said the condition of Hilda Avenue points to the issue officials have in addressing many roads the town has taken control of at Rainbow Lake and in other areas during the past decade.
A limited annual paving budget means blacktopping all desired roads will take time.
Paving the entire Rainbow Lakes area would cost about $1 million, he said, which would be close to the entire town paving budget for the year. Fowler said it will be five to seven years before the entire Rainbow Lake area is paved.
Councilor Brad Benson suggested the public works department come before the council with an update on its plan and schedule for paving the former private roads in town.
He said it would be helpful to have a ranking of the order in which the roads will be paved.
