The best beautification option for Sooke would be to create a “Seaside Road” from Mariners Village all the way to Sooke Harbour house. That way all the unsightly buildings and businesses could remain in the background instead of being our town’s main feature.
The feature road could then become our new Main Street and we could decorate it tastefully with planters, feature lights, a fountain, quaint cafe’s and local artwork and maybe even a small performing arts centre/gallery for local writers, musicians etc to share their works. It could be so amazing.
Sooke really has so much potential and could be a stellar community and destination point we could all be proud of, imagine a “Sooke by the Sea.” Perhaps a vision for the future.
