Time to deal with seven-year eyesore

Time to deal with seven-year eyesore

The old Parksville Beach Resort has now been boarded up for more than eight years.

With graffiti all over the boards facing our beautiful oceanfront walkway for at least seven years. Enough already!

I have filed three bylaw complaints in the last two years with the city responding each time by letting them slide because “the owners are going to file plans soon”.

We first heard that from them in July 2017 and again in May 2018.

Crickets since then.

Summer 2019 is soon upon us.

How much longer do we need to see the graffiti?

Hundreds of thousands of tourists and locals will again walk by this continuing seven-year eyesore, and as a Parksville resident, I say enough.

The city wants to wait to see what is planned, so do I, but at least get rid of the graffiti.
