Brow trail fence height to be lowered again

News Jun 23, 2015 by Gord Bowes Hamilton Mountain News

The height of a decorative fence along the brow on the east Mountain will be three feet, nine inches.

The barrier is needed because of a new paved, multi-use trail being installed on the edge of the escarpment as part of the reconstruction of Mountain Brow Boulevard, said east Mountain councillor Tom Jackson.

Residents started complaining after seeing six-foot posts installed earlier this month.

After a two-hour meeting with residents last week, the height was lowered from the four feet, six inches proposed by Jackson.

It will be consistent with a large portion of the Mountain Park Avenue area, he said, while providing the safety fencing that is required along the new trail.
