Use green to make green

I was at the White Rock council meeting on July 9 when former councillor Margaret Woods queried regarding the surplus of approximately $8 million.

If this is in fact true, would council consider using a tiny portion to retain a little green space by dedicating the lot at 15118 Thrift Ave. as an extension of Bryant Park?

(Editor’s note: Woods was asking about money left in the city’s capital asset budget, wondering whether taxes could be reduced. The lot in question is the subject of a current rezoning application to allow five units.)

This may sound laughable, but why not give a little breathing space to this two-block radius of Thrift and Johnston? Two towers and another condominium are going up now.

Why can we not have a little green corner on the south side of Thrift?
