With the rapid growth of new permanent residents to Sun Peaks Mountain Resort Municipality and the influx of young families and children, staff has noticed that speeding is becoming more of an issue. As we see more and more families moving in on streets such as Burfield, Fairways and Mountain View, the concern for slower speed limits grows.
Sun Peaks Mountain Resort Municipality (SPMRM) has already implemented a speed bump trial which we believe is slowing drivers to more acceptable neighbourhood speeds. For the next step in slowing drivers down, SPMRM is proposing to convert all residential areas in Sun Peaks to a 30kph speed limit. The only 50kph zone would be entering Sun Peaks on Sun Peaks Road up until the 30kph sign entering the Village area, everything outside of that area would be limited to 30kph.
We are giving resident of Sun Peaks a 15 day notice period to provide comments, questions or concerns to this proposal. Please provide these to our Director of Public Works email@example.com.
