Help downtown Parksville

Surely you jest. Attracting visitors to downtown Parksville? Good luck with that.

How long is it going to take for the city to actually do something to make our downtown an attractive and fun place to be?

Nothing can be done until the Alberni Highway is diverted. Only then can businesses thrive and residents and visitors made to feel safe. Having a major thoroughfare dividing the downtown core thwarts any thoughts of new ventures in that area.

Think of Craig Street Market on a more permanent basis, in a permanently blocked off, paved few blocks, pots of trees, music playing (as in Courtenay), buskers occasionally.

It can be done, at a cost, of course, but the rewards are immeasurable. Then we’ll tackle the beach access.
