Speak up for North Delta’s future

Summer's the wrong time for public input; the proposed towers are wrong in themselves, too.

On July 31 I went to the open house at Sungod for the North Delta Area Plan Review. If you did not attend the event, you must go online and see for yourself what Delta’s considering for the Scott Road corridor.

Imagine multiple towers 24 to over 32 storeys high casting shadows on the long-established neighbourhoods to the west of them. What are Delta council and the municipality planners thinking? Twenty-four to more than 32 storeys high?

Is money more important than quality of life? Neighbours of North Delta, please go online and see for yourself. Speak up before our community is eradicated by congestion.

Summer a terrible time to gather public input

 

With many residents away from home for the summer, the planning of North Delta’s future goes on without their valued input.

When I emailed the city asking to include all North Delta residents in the plan by adding another open house in September and postponing the close of the survey to the fall, the reply I received stated that because it was summer and many residents were away, the open houses were held in July only.

Here is more proof Delta’s mayor, council and city planners have already decided the fate of the municipality’s future.
