LETTER: Don’t take away waterfront resident parking

I wish to add my concerns about the negative impact of taking waterfront owners’ parking away in Qualicum Beach.

Across the highway is dangerous: opening car doors, unloading and crossing with children, groceries, mobility aids, the handicapped and the elderly, often more than once a day.

Frequently, there is no parking on the south side when Rotary events are on and residents can’t park.

There are now three to four handicapped residents who live here. I am sure the town planners are working hard to make this good for residents and walkers. Improving ditch parking and slowing traffic is imperative, as this will allow for other ideas of how to move a safe walkway over, outside of hydro poles and hydrants and landscaping options to have a pleasant, safe walk, not a speedway.

Hopefully resident parking will not be lost. Residents and visitors need to be able to park in front of their homes.
