Starr Winchester is right on about the third bridge crossing at 29th Street. For the cost of a third crossing please find a way to make it happen. There are 12 blocks between Fifth Street and 17th Street. Between 17th and 29th streets there are 12 blocks. To get the best traffic flow, a more direct route into Comox is vital. If a candidate for mayor stepped up with a platform vowing to get Maple Pool rezoned and settled out of court within 2014 and guarantee a referendum on the bridge location, they would have our vote. Lewis Park floods into Lewis Lake most years. Yet an expensive addition was constructed on the Lewis Centre. A bridge at 11th Street. would only add to the congestion on Cliffe Ave. and Highway 19A. Why is there such a disconnect between elected councils and the voting public?
