I own a house in Kingsbury row homes. There is a terrible parking problem going on in that area.
The parking problem on 208th Street and 80th Avenue is affecting our daily lives. We cannot have friends over for a get-together, because there is a chronic shortage of parking. Elderly people visiting their children in this community have to walk at least half a mile to park.
I was proud to be a part of this community when we first started living here, but in the past year, with the speed at which new housing complexes are being built in this area, I am afraid to say that the current parking problem is going to worsen in the next few years, until thereâ€™s something done to deal with it.
We as a community have tried to make reason with the councillors, but they have buried this problem under rules and regulations thrown at us in bulk.
Rules and regulations are made to help us, not the other way round. Our tax dollars are going to waste.
If this problem continues, then not only will it affect our daily lives, but it will hurt us financially, too. The price of our beloved houses will also drop substantially.
I urge our community members to take part in this problem-solving effort spearheaded by a few of our spirited residents.
I again urge Township councillors to forget about red tape and do their job â€“ what they are being paid for by our tax dollars.
