Opinion

We’ve reached our limits

Editor:

Following the well-attended public meetings and hearings at city hall on Oct. 1 and 9, I read with interest the letters to the editor, the referendum idea regarding highrise buildings, the Official Community Plan for the highrise city within a city and the continued enraged feelings pro and con regarding the beach area and the height of buildings.

The city council could make a rubber stamp with “35 Feet Only at the Beach.”

They could stamp all requests for buildings over this height. This would save time, money and anxious feelings.

The newest Vidal Victoria building proposal brought such anxiety and anger from the public because it was a fundamental change from the 35 feet for buildings at the beach that we all know and love.
