I ‘found’ Sidney 35 years ago and although growth was necessary, the former mayor and council managed to let Sidney grow up at a gentle pace. The tax base has probably tripled since then … but there seems to be an element of greed now … bigger and more is better.
Some of this administration’s decisions include increased density with no setbacks, only a fence dividing a liquor store and seniors complex and a (proposed) skateboard park in Tulista Park. Sidney is too special to become another Langford. Wake up mayor and council.
