To the editor:
The new Glenmore Road is great. But it has become an appalling eyesore.
Weeds on both sides of the road have been neglected to the point that they reach four feet in height in most places and yawn wildly over the sidewalks.
The city has inadvertently set the standard for tidiness by its neglect and it is therefore encouraging users to be as neglectful by littering and allowing their pets feces to remain undisturbed and smelling on the sidewalks. It’s disgusting to see.
Our city council doesn’t seem to care about it, so why should pet owners?
Kelowna is a tourist destination. Does council have such disregard for how we show ourselves to the world? Perhaps it is not in any of their backyards. Too bad.
Members of Kelowna council need to look at their constituency through critical eyes and help us have some pride in welcoming visitors.
Try to remember that there is a lot more to Kelowna than just our downtown core and waterfront.
