Sidney resident to hold public meeting on town’s growth spurt

Her interest was sparked after a petitioner said people were angry over new developments happening in Sidney.

Sidney resident Judith Moscovitz is facilitating a development and densification meeting for the public this Sunday.

Her interest was sparked when a resident knocked on her door with a petition, saying people were angry over new developments happening in Sidney. She was also asked by an individual what she thought should be the priority for Sidney.

Her answer? For tempers to be cooled and people talking to each other rather than about each other.

“Let’s get rid of the anger, lets just express ourselves and get the show on the road,” she told the PNR.

Moscovitz said the meeting is a chance for people to talk about their issues with Sidney, particularly in relation to densification and development, an issue that’s been quite prominent as of late.

“I think people don’t feel heard,” she said.

She has invited Sidney Mayor Steve Price, members of council, realtors and developers to come out along with the public to discuss their frustrations.

Moscovitz will facilitate the meeting and allow people to speak and ask questions to those who may have answers.

“I want it to be an all community meeting where people can civilly express their views.”

She said that not everyone will go away happy, but that they can move on.

The meeting is at the Mary Winspear’s Charlie White Theatre this Sunday from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. All are welcome to attend.
