Letters: Partiers block rural Langley sidewalk

Dear Editor,

I like to walk in my neighbourhood as often as possible, and am pleased that the Township has seen fit to provide sidewalks on some of the busier roads out here in the hinterland. 

However, today (Sunday) a resident on 240th Street had a party, and their visitors chose to park their cars right on that sidewalk. As a result, I had to walk with my back to traffic on a busy road. 

Would these same people have parked on the sidewalk in downtown Langley or Brookswood or Walnut Grove? 

I hope the residents just south of 56th Avenue will tell future guests that, if they don’t want footprints on their vehicles, don’t park on the sidewalk! 

Thanks for allowing me the space to vent. I feel much better.

L. Phillips, Langley
