LETTERS: Another stand taken down


Re: Mid-rise on track after seven-year hiatus, Feb. 20.

Can’t say I am getting excited – distressed and anxious would be more appropriate words – anticipating the soon-to-begin development of 15300-block of 16 Avenue in South Surrey.

Plans for the site went from four to eight storeys, with more facilities, shape and parking, requiring a larger footprint, I assume.

This will result in the near total destruction of our beautiful, majestic stand of trees, nesting place for eagles and other species, another mini-forest in our midst, gone forever. So sad.

Could we at least consider keeping the trees around the perimeter of the property?
