This neighbourhood community is magic!! Wether it’s coming together to question why our street lights are being changed or bringing awareness to an American company being paid to do consultation for the city of Vancouver in our neighbourhood — I know let’s not even go there (thanks old civic regime). This is not a negative rant but rather a positive focus on how this community for over 40 years continues to work together to defend the peoples right to less traffic and putting a roadway onto National where it was designed to be years ago. In 2015 the city agreed to slow traffic on Prior — 9,000 cars a day travel down this road which disconnects the neighbourhood from the park. How can you not be happy when a questionable process results in an opportunity to visit your neighbours: (right?)
What I love about this awareness session most is that it happened without effort. It was quite literally a spontaneous turnout. Gotta love that.
Similarly, we have something presently going down regarding our street lamps. I’ll keep you posted on that one.
This weeks post relates to those building blocks of community and what lies beneath the old streets. Enjoy the nod at Project 851.
