A permanent speed sign has been installed at the Arrow Heights Elementary school zone on Nichol Road.

A new, permanent speed sign has gone up At the Arrow Height Elementary school zone on Nichol Road.

The sign, which was installed last week, gives you a speed reading as you pass through the school zone. It replaces the temporary one that was stolen last year.

It is the latest in a series of efforts by the school’s parent advisory committee to get drivers to slow down through the school zone. In the fall, the city installed rumble strips in the road and alongside the shoulder.

Tracey Vopni, the chair of the PAC said the rumble strips have helped but that the PAC is still hoping for sidewalks in the future.

“Any measure that helps with slowing traffic has been helpful,” she said. “We’ve turned to alternate measures because we have spent countless hours trying to get safe measures put in.”

She said she has already noticed people slowing down because of the speed sign.

The sign was purchased with support from the Revelstoke Credit Union. “Any time we con contribute to the kids in our community, we’re more than happy,” said Roberta Bobicki, the CEO of the RCU.
