Letter: Big city interests getting their way in town

What are you, in city hall, trying to do making another unbearable large city that most of us came here to get away from?

To the editor:

What is happening to this once wonderful town?

The traffic is bumper to bumper and there isn’t anywhere they can build through-roads and it is getting worse.

Highway 97, Springfield, Enterprise and Lakeshore roads are clogged up.

The bridge is clogged up and there are more and more highrise condos being built.

Pretty soon we will not be able to go out on the roads because they are just impossible to move on.

Why on Earth is the city allowing more condos to be built and buildings with office and shop spaces? Most of them are empty on Enterprise, Springfield and others. Rent signs are all over.

What are you, in city hall, trying to do making another unbearable large city that most of us came here to get away from?

Enough is enough. There are other places people can settle in this valley besides Kelowna.

Ann Huculak,
