Re: Input requested for design, July 30.

Lance King’s proposal for expansion of the promenade is a positive idea that would serve the community on two fronts.

It would provide park space along the waterfront and increase tourism, which in turn would support the businesses on East Beach.

As well, it would provide a safety feature for the preservation of the shoreline which is eroded because of rising ocean levels, particularly during high-tide storms of winter.

White Rock is fortunate to have a resident like King who is willing to initiate and partake in such a project.

The promenade started with a vision by concerned citizens and politicians. Let’s renew the vision, as it can only have a positive effect on the future of White Rock.

Jim Saunders, White Rock
