Bridgewater expected to take ownership of three new streets



Utility crews work on a power pole along one of Bridgewater's newest streets.
 BRIDGEWATER - This town is expected this week to officially lay claim to three new streets.

 Etna Street, Acorn Drive and Dr. Ernst Court are the latest additions off Glen Allan Drive, arguably the fastest-growing residential area in town.

 Bridgewater has to pass a council motion to declare new streets for eligibility for town services. Passing the motion will also allow the developer, Windward Investments, to subdivide some of the land.

 The new streets were constructed very well, said Mayor Carroll Publicover.

 "These streets have gentle corners … traffic will move slowly," he said after a briefing last week. "There's a nice grass median between the curb and the property lines."

 Windward Investments of Hantsport, headed by David Cochrane, is in the midst of constructing townhouses and semi-detached dwellings. Several have already been built along Glen Allan Drive.

 The company signed a development agreement last year with the town to build townhouses and semi-detached dwellings. They will also build single-unit dwellings but those don't require a development agreement.

 The company has now opened an office at the corner of Glen Allan Drive and Etna Street.

 Bridgewater's heritage advisory committee recommended the name Etna because it's the name of the Italian city that was secured in battle during the Second World War with a significant contribution made by local West Novies.

 They also agreed to use the name Acorn, which represents the geographic location of the street and the significant number of oak trees in the area.

 Dr. Ernst Court honours Bridgewater's first female doctor, Dr. Victoria Sarah Ernst (1856 to 1940).

 "It's going to be a beautiful area for people to reside," Mayor Publicover said, adding with a smile, "We're going to be looking forward to the assessment, that's for sure."
