LETTERS: Consider OCP’s impact on city


My husband and I have recently moved to White Rock.


My husband and I have recently moved to White Rock.

We chose to live in this beautiful ‘city by the sea’ to hopefully live out our retirement because its aesthetic qualities and livability of its residential neighbourhoods with the convenience of the town centre.

We are not against development, but changing the current OCP to allow multi-use high density in areas that are clearly residential, we feel, will change the city forever.

Where will it end? Will we become another Vancouver’s West End? Will we see highrises on our beach?

I urge council to consider the impact these changes will have on our city.

The petition opposing the 24- and 21-storey towers on Oxford Street is available to sign at the Farmers Market on Sundays and also online http://chn.ge/1OdYdiG
