Thoughts about Corfield plans

City of Parksville parks staff should be utilized to develop and create an appropriate low maintenance park

After attending the recent open house regarding the proposed Corfield St./Jenson Greenspace Extension plan, the following comments and observations were noted.

• The proposal should include sidewalks on “both” sides of Corfield from 19A to Stanford, as opposed to the plan showing no sidewalk from the Co-Op Gas bar proceeding North on Corfield.

• A commercial truck loading zone should be included on Corfield adjacent to the Liquor Depot, so as to allow for safe unloading of trucks delivering to the Corfield Plaza merchants.

• The Green linear park proposal from Jensen thru to McCarter will be an excellent feature for Pedestrian/bikeway access.

• The Community Garden participants should be consulted prior to pathway construction and decide if additional space is required.

• After the Certified Arborist is finished with dangerous tree removals, the City of Parksville parks staff should be utilized to develop and create an appropriate low maintenance park.

• The talented staff can work at it as time allows and provide their valuable expertise.

• City of Parksville has the equipment and staff that can transform this greenspace into a jewel for citizens and visitors.
