Motorists leaving Sylvan Lake and heading west or coming into the town from that direction need to keep a light foot on the gas pedal.

Motorists leaving Sylvan Lake and heading west or coming into the town from that direction need to keep a light foot on the gas pedal.

Sylvan Lake town council recently gave the green light to reducing the speed another 10 km/h from 70 km/h.

The council of the Summer Village of Norglenwold had requested a 50 km/h speed limit and town staff concurred with this recommendation, but town council decided 60 km/h would be enough of a reduction.

Sylvan Lake Mayor Susan Samson said keeping the speed limit in check is important.

“It’s only going to get busier,” she said.

Carol McMillan, the Mayor of the Summer Village of Norglenwold said she is pleased the speed limit has been reduced.

“It was the people on the south end of Norglenwold who requested it,” she said. “And I’m sure it has helped.”
