Beautify, don’t scarify uptown Alberni

One major upgrade and a necessary beautification project would be the grubby, weed encircled parking lot in the middle of our uptown core.

To the Editor,

One major upgrade and a necessary beautification project would be the grubby, weed encircled parking lot in the middle of our uptown core.

Is city hall that daft to not realize that simple enhancement would go a long way to transforming the overall look?

Start with a row of tall slender poplar trees along the rear of the lot to block that eyesore view— how easy would that be?

Garden it up a little, similar to Harbour Quay: so far not too complicated even for city hall. A little asphalt here and there and “Boom!” you’ve actually accomplished something.

Oh yeah, try not to hire a bunch of expensive consultants for such an easy no brainer.

Christopher Massop,

Port Alberni
