Absolutely foolish for a proposed employee parking lot (PNR, March 27) to be unveiled without an understanding of what Sidney council hopes to see built at the intersection of Beacon Avenue and the Pat Bay Highway as a whole.
Will the proposed parking lot really serve the intended employee users who are expected to walk from one edge of the town through and to the other edges? What happens if the site is needed for other public uses such as major events and exhibitions? What are the traffic implications on Bevan and the nearby residential area?
Will this result in the useful but ugly skating park being located in another area and become an eyesore there as well as an annoyance to the nearby residents?
Will the future of the proposed fire hall and ambulance development be jeopardized once more?
Strange how this mayor and council don’t seem to have an unspoken thought, except in bits and bites, and with little coherence and planning, at least evident to the rest of us.
And another four years to go.
Greg Stevens, Sidney
