PENINSULA: Bogged down in process

Despite a presentation from the Saanich Peninsula Chamber of Commerce to the council several years ago, once again the tourist season is upon us and yet the best we can do in Sidney to welcome guests is an uninformative temporary sign propped up against a temporary storage unit at the Anacortes ferry landing.

We now have no information office at the south end of town and a defunct tourist information station on Highway 17 north of town. We have no effective informative sign inviting B.C. Ferries’ traffic into Sidney as they move south.

Where is the efficient and effective leadership from Sidney council on heading up the placing of effective signage in a timely and strategic manner? Have we become bogged down in process and sacrificed any sense of timeliness? What a wasted set of opportunities.

We can only hope that voters will recall this lack of response and concern when they go to the polls in fall.
