Honestly, I do not think Victoria council cares about the residents of Burnside Gorge. No councillors I can think of have lived in that neighbourhood and the residential part is not really connected to the rest of the City of Victoria
I lived in Burnside Gorge for close to 10 years and we may as well not have been on Vancouver Island for all the City cared. Policing sucked. City would hold all their meetings in an industrial area with no parking for the public. The area was promised a connection between Maddock and the Galloping Goose as a priority park/land acquisition by the city in 1991, it still has not happened. I could go on for pages......
It is beyond me why people get so upset about insufficient parking at public hearings. Would it not be a benefit to the community to have fewer cars driving up traffic in your neighborhood and instead have more pedestrians, cyclists and transit users? Are the complaints typically from those who want to live in the building themselves?
Makes sense if you indirectly want to throw up roadblocks for the project. “More parking” means a higher ratio of stalls to units, which more $$$ or less units.
Victoria Cool Aid Society has unveiled plans to replace an aging supportive housing complex with modern rental apartments.
