I have watched - and occasionally opposed - Langley Township council endorse growth for 30 years.
I have also observed it coincides with commute times of two to three times those of 30 years ago.
And ever-increasing taxes to help pay for more traffic lights, not to mention various fees and hidden gas taxes.
Recently, council approved the high-density Forewest project. I know this will add to my carbon footprint as I try to find a new route to navigate around Langley in attempt to minimize my commute.
Several years ago I toured Yorkson, and wondered why all the houses had suites but no additional parking.
Read the editorial section of our papers and you will see the distress this oversight has caused the residents of Yorkson.
Subdivision is always great for the developer, and the rewards for them easily justify sending representatives to council meetings.
But do not forget the silent majority who are too busy with family and work to attend or even consider the ramifications or poorly planned development.
