I enthusiastically endorse letter-writer C. Schroedter’s recommendation that owners of the two highrises be persuaded to connect their buildings with a walkway-bridge at Johnston Road/152 Street.
This would give peace of mind by increasing pedestrian safety, shine a favourable light on the towers’ developers and free the ‘gateway’ funds for greater good in the community, such as the suggestions put forward by letter-writers K. Wuschke in the same edition and J.M. Chipera (More sense for civic dollars, March 30).
Whilst current highrise development has become a reality – with more underway – let’s do whatever we can to retain our unique village setting in a safe environment. If each developer ‘got this’ and contributed accordingly, we could have a more congenial relationship in the midst of towering growth, with community funds going to projects much more dire.
