Letter: Clean up the local eyesore properties

To the editor:

I feel that we live in one of the most beautiful and scenic area spots in the entire world.

But, how can there not be any shame from both the City of Kelowna and City of West Kelowna in letting many eye sores still stand?

I really feel that structures left to stand such as the Bluffs, the very vacant McDonalds when first arriving into [the west gate of] Kelowna, the Cattle Country and strip mall just leaving [west gate of] West Kelowna and the graffiti-ridden, weed-infested and boarded up former low income housing site next to the Triple O’s on Harvey, you know the one. Horrible looking.

This is to name just a few places as there are many more horrible eye sores we have to look at daily and for years now.

For once listen up City of Kelowna and District  of West Kelowna, and take the time to get rid of such structures. Invest in a bulldozer and a worker and spend a few days to let our area be more of a scenic gem than an eye sore because of laziness and total lack of care and giving a you know what.Take pride in the entire city and our broad area and not just Bernard Avenue, for example.

Or step down and let someone else in who gives a you know what, please, for the love of it.

Nol Preen,

Kelowna

Editor’s note: Private property is just that—private. A local government cannot enter a property and bulldoze structures because it’s not occupied or unsightly.
