Neighbours want frontage road

At the June 21 View Royal council meeting, Mayor Graham Hill said the reason for rezoning the Heddle Avenue dedicated road into a park was to provide a buffer zone to protect the neighbours from the new View Royal fire hall.

At the June 21 View Royal council meeting, Mayor Graham Hill said the reason for rezoning the Heddle Avenue dedicated road into a park was to provide a buffer zone to protect the neighbours from the new View Royal fire hall.

The mayor knows full well that 99 per cent of the neighbours who will be most impacted by the fire hall want to keep their road frontage or property access which this new park, as proposed, will terminate.

If Hill is genuinely concerned about the impact of the fire hall on the immediate neighbours, he does not have to take away there road frontage and means of accessing their property, he can put his buffer park on the 2.38 acres of land bought by the town for the fire hall.

These poor people will be more adversely impacted by the mayor’s park on the Heddle Avenue dedicated road than by the new fire hall.

View Royal’s mayor and council can stop hurting these people by modifying their two proposed bylaws so that they do not take away from these people their crucial road frontage and property access.
