Great work, Courtenay council

Dear editor,

I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate city council and the planning department on their beautiful work.

Dear editor,

I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate city council and the planning department on the beautiful work they’ve done developing the Lerwick/Ryan road area over the past few years.

It looks so inviting, not a tree to be found, the vast expanse of parking areas gives one a feeling of spaciousness and the mobile home park looks much better now that we can all look at it.

I sure wish I could have bought one of those homes in Crown Isle 20 feet behind the new strip mall. Just a hop over the fence and you’re in shopping heaven!

I’m quite certain the area will further provide a calming effect on such a quiet and safe intersection, especially when the hospital is added in the mix. Who knows, a side benefit may be to alleviate some of the traffic congestion in Courtenay.

Let’s hope we can invite another American box store in, and then there won’t be a downtown core for Larry to worry about. I’m sure the tourists are going to love our up-market and convenient Comox Valley, however they may soon forget why they came.

Again, I would like to thank you all for your vision and foresight. Can’t wait for the next installment!

Colin Campbell,

Comox
