Our tax dollars will be spent to destroy one of the greatest assets of living in Cascade Park while greatly inconveniencing most residents.
My wife and I fell in love with McGillivray Boulevard when we moved to Vancouver 40 years ago. Becoming empty-nesters, we found a wonderful home here where we planned to spend the rest of our lives.
We enjoy the median, the two lanes of traffic each way, and watching the bikers, joggers, and cars all moving safely together.
I understand that the planning committee is considering a major transformation by making McGillivray one lane and eliminating parking on the boulevard. How will that affect those in the middle of large blocks?
Many residents in Cascade Park use cars to get where they need to. We travel to places the bus does not go. I often see four or five on a bus that could hold 50. Why? Because people can’t get to their destination by bus and if they could, it would take hours longer. Does the committee not value our time?
Planners who don’t live in our beautifully planned neighborhood are forcing their vision and will on how we should live.
