Waters seeks seat on Parksville city council

City of Parksville: Waters, Caroline — city council candidate

  • Oct. 28, 2014 7:00 a.m.

Caroline Waters is running for a seat on Parksville city council on Nov. 15.

“Parksville is my passion,” Waters said in a news release. “My vision of our community is a pedestrian-focused downtown surrounded by trails, parks and our oceanfront community park. The waterfront is our greatest asset and draws visitors and residents year round. The small city feeling with all types of services and businesses and a broad range of housing on the seaside is certainly what brought my family here in the eighties. We are blessed with a huge volunteer community who provide valuable services in every sector from tourism to planning. This community spirit and engagement is something we can be very proud of and celebrate.”

“My immediate goals and interests are in addressing some very significant traffic and pedestrian safety issues,” she said. “I would advocate for a review of our traffic plan to ensure every neighbourhood is both accessible and safe for our children, seniors and families. To that end, I will work hard on making those pedestrian connections to encourage safe walkable routes that connect our neighbourhoods to our downtown and parks. Currently, many residential neighbourhoods are being used as speedways endangering our children and all pedestrians.”
