Bump in Road for 26 Renaming

Regional | by Catherine Thompson  

Collingwood rejects Spirit Lake Road as new name for old Highway 26.

It's back to the drawing board in the process to rename Highway 26 between Wasaga Beach and Collingwood.

Collingwood councillors voted unanimously on Monday night against the name Spirit Lake Road, chosen in a survey sent out to property owners along the road.

The name was one of three suggested by a committee and put on the survey.

A new name will be needed when the new Highway 26, the by-pass, is finished in 2013.

The Ministry of Transportation has final say and has contacted the town wanting to move forward quickly.

The town clerk says the MTO has indicated if Collingwood and Wasaga Beach can't come up with a name, it will make the final decision.

Collingwood councillor Mike Edwards has put forward notice of a motion suggesting the road be called Blue Water View Parkway.

He says it fits in nicely with Pretty River Parkway.
