An invitation to those who have probably never cycled Riverside Drive before. Come along for a ride.
We also check out the persistant rumours that the residents objection to the RDVIP may have ulterior motives - like saving some of their landscaping and structures built on the public right-of-way.
It is difficult to actually see where the public R.O.W. ends and the private property begins. A good visual is the hydro poles that are erected within this R.O.W. Anything built between these poles and the road could be considered built on public land. A word of caution, however, in eyeballing this. When the City of Windsor annexed the Town of Riverside, there were different rules in place in the annexed town. The R.O.W.’s are all over the place, narrow in certain sections and very wide in others. This makes it tough to make blanket judgements, so the final word must be left with the city’s Planning Department
We just want this to come to a quick close and build a road worthy and safe for all modes of travel; foot, bicycle and motor vehicle
