LETTER: Solutions to parking and flooding problems

“No Parking” signs should be installed on the north side of the ditch until the culvert is installed.

Re: District battles flooding and Parking compromise ends in controversy (News, Dec. 21)

Both stories bring attention to the parking and water collection and distribution on Horne Road. Mayor Maja Tait brought attention to the solution for both problems.

The district needs to complete the installation of the culvert on the north side of Horne Road from Murray Road to the east. This is the real solution to the parking situation on “East” Horne Road and eliminate the danger of the deep ditch on the north side of the road. Install the culvert, pave over it after regrading the road to eliminate the swale on the south side.

In the meantime “No Parking” signs should be installed on the north side of the ditch until the culvert is installed.

Ralph Hull, Sooke
