Group working on Ottawa Riverwalk mile markers

April 24, 2013

LIMA The Allen Lima Leadership Class of 2012 is working to add mile markers on the Ottawa Riverwalk as part of its Visual Pride project, class members said Wednesday.

Groups can sponsor mile and quarter-mile signs by applying through the ALL website,

The numbering will begin with 0 point at the YMCA bridge and continue outward from there. Husky Lima Refinery is funding the cost of materials, so sponsorship of signs will go to other Visual Pride projects the class has in the works.

The group also needs volunteers to help install the signs, which will be done through June, in time to be completed for the July 4 Star Spangled Spectacular.
