Listen to the public, Colwood resident implores city council

Proposed development for Metchosin and Painter roads inappropriate for site, reader writes

Re: Development proposal for Metchosin and Painter roads

It is too bad that Colwood city hall has its earplugs in and the dollar sign blinders on.

They sure do not listen to the neighbourhood about this hideous development that does not suit the area and will make traffic more of a nightmare than it already is.

Maybe they will not be voted in again, as they do not hear the Colwood public’s voice. I would like to know why they choose to ignore residents and push this development through no matter what?

We already have a hole on Wale Road and another hole with cement and rebar at Colwood Corners, do we need another? The City of Colwood has no idea about planning and it sure shows.
