Letters LAND USE
Our conservative approach makes the market less of a wild ride. A lot less.
City hall zoned out
The Editor, Re: “Does zoning mean nothing?” Letters, Sept. 8. I have come to the conclusion zoning means nothing to city hall. One house destroyed and zoning to be changed so 18 units can be erected in it’s place on No. 2 Road and Maple, across the street, one down and three to take it’s place — on and on it goes all down No. 2 Road. Makes one wonder just what is happening at our city hall. It seems anything goes at city hall. They give themselves a hefty wage increase which we don’t get from our places of employment. Now, the developers seem to be able to do whatever they want as they continually change the zoning laws. Oh, we certainly voted in the wrong people. As we pay their wages, we should be able to fire the lot of them. Mary Jardine Richmond
Enforce the bylaws
The Editor, I’m amazed at how quickly people point the fingers at the ALC for not dealing with the “unregulated filling.” What about the city in all that? Right, they just recently adopted a bylaw to deal with it. Local governments have to step up and protect agricultural land as well. Many of the illegal uses also contravene local zoning, but I guess they had other priorities, not to mention more enforcement people too. We all have a shared responsibility as taxpayers to get our collective governments to step up and start working together, instead of sitting around and pointing fingers. Thomas Loo Richmond
