Kawartha Lakes is getting more than $92,000 to enhance their downtown cores with landscaping, signage and lights, crosswalks for pedestrian safety, and even for local businesses to spruce up storefronts.
When politicians dream, they dream in roads. They dream of roads connecting cities and towns (especially their cities and towns) and that these roads will then bring more people.
More people means more tax dollars. More roads also means more infrastructure for businesses, and those businesses in turn will perhaps choose a better connected Kawartha Lakes as their home.
