I live not too far from the proposed Gateway retail centre on the forgotten side of Sidney. In my 10 years of living here there’s been very little development to this residential neighbourhood.
I’ve studied the plan that was put forward by VAA in regards to Gateway and wholeheartedly support it.
Many people believe it will take away business.
I can’t say I agree with that. There’s a reason there are so many vacant stores — and that’s before the development gets started.
Many people believe there are going to be traffic problems. These people should try turning onto Beacon Ave from Stirling Way or from Galaran onto Beacon Avenue.
These intersections are accidents waiting to happen.
