Letters: Why Not?

Sooke resident wonders why there are no signs on local road

As a resident of Goodmere Road, the 6600 block, I wonder how the residents in the 6500 block, (where it doesn’t show up on any Google or GPS maps yet) get their deliveries? I don’t know how many times I have had to direct delivery vehicles to the 6500 block, or I get parcels left on my doorstep, that I have to deliver as they cannot find the correct address after driving up and down our short street numerous times.

There isn’t any noticeable signage whatsoever at the Church/Goodmere Road intersection indicating that the 6500 block is to the south. Why not?

On another note: They put up ‘No Parking’ signs along the sidewalk on Murray Road from Whiskers & Waggs down past Lincroft Road. What on earth is the logic or reasoning for this??

It was already next to impossible trying to squeeze in between vehicles to get home when there is a function at the Anglican Church or a busy day at that hair salon. Where is the traffic going to go next time the Anglican Church has a funeral or wedding?

How many times have you seen people pull over at the park area and enjoy an ice cream cone in the grass or let their dog run? Now they cannot park in front of there?

Sometimes I wonder where these planners put their logic and common sense.
