Keep The Drive Under Five

July 15, 2015

The No Tower Coalition, formed to oppose the monstrous tower proposed for the corner of Commercial & Venables, now has a great new slogan:

KEEP THE DRIVE UNDER FIVE

This is in recognition of almost all residents’ desire to see Commercial Drive remain at four storeys or less, to retain the human scale that helps create the Drive’s unique and popular character.

The Coalition’s campaign is building, with two new articles in today’s Vancouver Courier (see here and here) and, now, well over a thousand signatures on their petition. They are collecting more signatures and support this week with displays and brochures at Grandview Park most afternoons.

I urge everyone who doesn’t want to see our skyline dominated by a huge profit-driven condo tower to join the campaign and see how you can help.
