Comox becoming town ‘with views of shops and malls’

Dear editor,

I was recently visiting Comox ... the town where I was born.

Dear editor,

I was recently visiting Comox … the town where I was born.

I look forward to the view from Church Street and Comox Avenue towards the marina.

From street level, a person could glance down and enjoy a world-class view of ocean and mountains.

This view was valued by visitors and residents alike. This view helped brand Comox as a beautiful seaside destination.

On Monday when I glanced down from this intersection, all I could see was a new building under construction.

Something is lost forever because of the decisions of a few people who failed to protect the interests of the majority.

Does a town council not have a duty to protect the esthetics of a town? How are you planning to rebrand Comox?

Maybe as a town with views of shops and malls?

Catheryn Fyfe,

Victoria
