What good is an unlivable city?
The good accessible AMENITIES that we still have are a major point of attraction in Vancouver. We are, however, quickly losing them.
Densifying without expanding the existing community centres, without increasing the number of school spaces and day care centres, without increasing park space, only leads to one thing only: making the existing amenities inaccessible by overcrowding them.
What about ROAD WORKS, PUBLIC TRANSIT, and PARKING SPACES?
Densifying without caring where the new cars will park or how much more crowded our public transit is going to be, or how congestion on the roads will affect us all, only leads to one thing: increasing the time it gets us to get to work and increasing the stresses of every day life.
We have to be careful in maintaining the Vancouver that everyone wants to live in, and that cannot be done without giving communities the right to decide what happens to the place we call home.
