The new road at Spring Street Hill will be dedicated tomorrow morning.
A ribbon cutting ceremony will be held at 10:00 AM to mark the event. If you would like to attend, the ceremony will be held at the top of the hill.
This is a project which is of prime importance to the residents of Silver Hills. It is more than that,though, it is a statement of commitment to the infrastructure of our city. It would have been irresponsible to abandon that pathway to Silver Hills, and it would have said that we are willing to live with deterioration. That is not a message we should be sending.
For those who may point to obvious signs of deterioration on many streets throughout the city and carp about skewed priorities, I would say this reclamation of the hillside road is a vitally important step in the initiative of renewal. This is only one of many steps we need to take, but it is a good one.
