Council has now decided to get tough when dealing with developers
I find Richmond city council’s collective indignation towards Walmart and the proposed SmartCentre development laughable.
While they've willingly turned a blind eye to the destruction of entire neighbourhoods with the spread of stucco mansion ghettos and were seemingly neutered in their ability to deal with Onni’s bait and switch on the Steveston waterfront, now they’ve decided to get tough when dealing with developers?
Given their poor record in urban planning to date and the hodgepodge that is our City Centre, I would think they’d welcome the jobs, investment in infrastructure, and future revenue through taxes that come with this type of project.
