New Proposed Development

Please see message from our School Council below:

Dear parents/guardians of Octagon Pond Elementary,

It has come to our attention that the town has received an application for a restaurant with a drive-thru to be located at the corner of Sgt Donald Lucas Drive and Topsail Road. As a school council, we have major concerns about this proposal:

  • Traffic coming into and out of the school zone is already congested, especially at key times of the day - this would certainly increase traffic and cause further congestion.

  • Increased traffic leads to major safety issues for our children walking to school.

If you have concerns about this proposal, we urge you to contact the town before Friday, June 28, 2019. Comments should be sent to Cynthia Hulan at 782-3802 or

Thank you,

Octagon Pond Elementary School Council
