Save valley from developers

Re. Canadian Horizon’s proposed subdivision on the Naramata Bench in Penticton

Open letter to Penticton city council and Okanagan Valley residents

Do you remember Joni Mitchell’s song Big Yellow Taxi?

“They paved paradise, put up a parking lot” should ring true for all of us who lived through the 1970s. Uncontrolled urban sprawl is a world-wide problem and we all need to stop this insanity. Enough is enough.

There is only one Naramata Bench and opportunistic developers are licking their chops to destroy the entire Okanagan Valley. It’s unbelievable that residents and elected politicians alike are supportive of ruining our precious valley.

Wake up Penticton. The only development you should support is one that creates a better quality of life for the next generation. It’s time to stand up to those who wish to profit off our paradise.

Who says that you can’t fight city hall and reverse this foolhardy trend? It’s time you stand up for common sense.

Scott Rowland, West Kelowna
