Essa Street will end north of Queen

"The developer of a small sub-division west of Bradford Public School had a two-year-old question resolved by council at its Jan. 12 meeting.
Council passed a resolution to allow Essa Street to be closed just north of its present limit at Queen Street.
Mac Lewis asked told [sic] council the street plan for his 10-lot subdivision through three revisions in the past two years.
Previously, council had asked that Essa Street be extended and turned so it would meet Fletcher Street, typing two sub-divisions together.
Council passed a resolution to have Essa Street closed north of Fox Run Lane, which will allow the McDawb sub-division to be started in the spring."

The idea was to honor the war veterans, while they were still alive; to eliminate the risk of confusion of street names in an emergency, by changing similar names; and perhaps, to untie the Municipality in a gesture towards its veterans.
Instead, it re-opened old wounds, and contributed towards new grievances. ..."
