Sidney trolley service needed

Problem of parking in Town of Sidney needs to be addressed

I have just read with interest the article in the Nov. 23, 2012 issue of the Peninsula News Review, Business group wants BIA. Nowhere in any of the information I have seen is the problem of parking in Sidney addressed.

For the past four years I have been lobbying the mayor and some of the councillors to consider organizing a free trolley service in Sidney. To date I have had only vague “we are considering it” replies.

As a senior living in Sidney, it is almost impossible to shop or frequent our many excellent restaurants due to the parking problem. Even if we are fortunate enough to find a parking spot in one of the parking lots, it is often too far for us to walk. I have mentioned this problem to my friends, business people and visitors and they agree a trolley in Sidney would be a wonderful addition to our lovely town.

If you agree, I urge you to let the mayor know how you feel.
