It has been a great summer for construction at the Wembley Mall. The completion of the new B.C. government liquor store and the soon to be completed Canadian Tire store with its newly paved parking lot looks great.
Sadly, every time one exits the parking lot on the east side of the liquor store to the Island Highway, we have to see the construction debris. There are lengths of rebar, light standards (very expensive) and assorted garbage. One would have assumed that this area was to have been landscaped to finish off the parking lot some time ago.
Who is responsible for this? Does the city governance not pay attention to how these conditions reflect badly on the community? Since moving to this community in April, we have noticed, and I have written about, unsightly and neglected properties. There seems to be a lack of concern by those in charge.
Council bemoans the lack of tourism funding from the province. Maybe they should show some resolve to clean up before they complain.
When is the next municipal election?
