LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
traffic in both directions and speed bumps do little to slow traffic. Residents are already challenged with limited parking outside their own property.
The Warehouse obviously wants to develop their store and encourage customer growth.
Access should be to/from Balmoral Rd, not Rocklands Ave, which wasn’t built for delivery trucks and heavy traffic. and an opportunity for us to connect with the history of our neighbourhood.
To demolish this site and build new feels like the kind of architectural assimilation that creates places like Dannemora, Botany Downs, Albany.
Let’s embrace the character of places – breathe life back in, whilst keeping the sentiment and memory alive. I think that people and business provide culture and meaning. Cheaply developed new residential and commercial property isn’t the right thing to do and will only destroy the soul of what is a very vibrant inner city suburb.
I will miss the cracked asphalt, the places we used to ride our bikes and where we hid to smoke cigarettes when we were young.
I will miss the memory of a place, that on first look, has no value. It’s not the architecture of this place that is making it unprofitable. Let’s not be so quick to erase and let’s see what we can do to enhance.
