We have had some public signs go missing lately. The most notable is the one for Smart Road. We’ve had vandalism in Coalmont before, and no place is immune. Luckily the regional district has offered to replace that one. Part of that road was the first access to Coalmont when it started and was still in use up until the 40’s. It is an important part of our history and we should honour that. What the actual name was at first is not known. It is entirely possible that it was called Coalmont Road.
There are at least four other signs reported missing. A couple were private signs, and the two “no motorized hill climbing” ones on the KVR are missing as well. Signs cost money and effort, but the biggest loss is to the sense of trust and well being within the community. §
