Letter: Development is coming, engagement is low, second chance to contribute comes this spring — 2 Comments

  1. Indeed. I think many people in the Sooke Region have become aware during all the mandated isolation of the past (almost) year how fortunate we are to live here. We have quick and easy access to the calming effects of nature; we are still a small enough town to have a sense of community where we support one another and our local businesses and we’re (mostly) pretty darned easy-going when it comes to neighbors who might have a different take on things.
    An OCP is developed with input from the community because it is supposed to reflect our communal sense of what we would like our town to look like for the next 10 years.
    Since Sooke currently seems to be a most desirable place to live and is developing rapidly we might want to consider whether the OCP should generate a cap on growth that would better equip us to maintain the natural environs and sense of community that mean so much to us.

  2. I particularly agree, endorse the final paragraph of the above jo.p writer’s remarks, referencing “a cap on growth etc.”
