I grew up in Tsawwassen and we had no sidewalks on most of the residential streets, but the edges of the street looked neat and the properties came up to them nicely.
In Saanich has very few sidewalks in residential neighbourhoods. And the edge of the streets look messy in almost all cases.
I would prefer to buy a house in Victoria because they have sidewalks and street side landscaping.
Yesterday we looked at a house at 900 Lavender street. A nice middle class neighbourhood that looks down market because of the messy fronts of houses. The street I live on is lower middle class, but looks much better.
can one convince Saanich to do more sidewalks? Is it even beneficial for the world?
