Re: Colwood takes aim at video signs in city (Gazette, Feb. 6)
As a longtime Colwood resident I am very concerned that the biggest issue that our city council feels needs to be dealt with is video signs. I would suggest that video signs look much better than the two giants holes near Colwood corners.
Maybe we should install large video signs to hide these embarrassments. Our neighbours in Langford continue to get more facilities like the future YM-YMCA, new parks, and cycling lanes. Business is booming in Langford and over the time I have lived in Colwood we have become the poor neighbours.
I would hope there are bigger issues for our city council to be working on. What is going to happen with the hole on Wale Road and the partial construction at Colwood Corners?
Our cycling lanes are the poorest in Greater Victoria. Few new businesses are moving to Colwood. Sewage treatment needs to solved. Forget about the video signs and work on some real issues.
