LETTERS: Embarrassed to bring others here

An open letter to White Rock council.

The purpose of this letter is to ask that the promenade be properly maintained.

An open letter to White Rock Mayor Wayne Baldwin and council.

The purpose of this letter and attached photos is to ask that the promenade be properly maintained.

I moved to White Rock more than 10 years ago and walk the promenade nearly every day that I am home. It is my observation that over the years the standard of care of the promenade and the area around it has gradually deteriorated to the point I am embarrassed to invite guests to walk with me. It is terrible!

Seems like you used maintenance money to remove the beautiful trees under some sort of excuse that you need to maintain the hill (Bluff clearcut catches many off guard, May 13, 2015; We should have had bluff plan, June 3, 2015) – but I was assured something better was on its way.

Really? Is this what you are talking about?

Kindly review the photos – because I am certain that if any of you walked the promenade recently, you surely would not allow the continued deterioration.

I ask that you immediately take steps to provide reasonable maintenance.

I look forward to your response.

Norma Barber, White Rock
