Steinbach mayor Earl Funk said on Tuesday that plans to install lighting at the intersection of Park Road and Old Tom Road was a good start towards improved safety in the area.
He told The Carillon that city administration is currently working on a plan for improvements in the area, which will be presented to council at a future study session.
"We’re also looking at other amenities there like a walking path, possibly a park," Funk said of what plans are being considered in addition to the lighting.
"We got to start somewhere and this is where we are starting," he said.
The mayor said city resources are focused on debt repayment in 2019. On Tuesday, council gave approval to debt servicing of $5.4 million towards the city’s $11.4 million supplemental water supply system.
"We’ll be getting back to our capital plan in 2020," he said.
He would only commit generally to a timeline for the pathway and park project.
"I’d really like to see that happen in this term," he said.
