LETTER: Neighbour has concerns about traffic and noise increase around proposed Comox pub

Dear editor,

I am not opposed and if fact am looking forward to the taphouse and pub planned for Church Street in Comox. However, I have concerns about the noise and traffic that will accompany such an establishment.

So, to the mayor, and council: What is the plan for addressing the increased traffic and parking issues in the vicinity of the pub and on side streets?

Here are some low cost suggestions: Traffic calming measures on Church street (no speed bumps), signed angle parking on the east side of Church Street, north from Buena Vista Avenue junction, no trucks route, and perhaps at least a painted traffic circle for the many U-turners at Buena Vista and Queen street junctions.

It is requested that someone from the mayor’s office or council comment on this as I have every confidence this issued has been already addressed.

Looking forward to the new pub but not the increase in traffic and parking issues.

Charles Romain,
