LETTER: There’s no place like home

Langford council has OK’d the building of four condominium buildings in neighbourhoods of aging single-family homes. Scafe Road is one of the streets affected. I have been living in an “aging single-family home” on Scafe Road since 1973. Two of the towers will be built on Scafe Road.

The majority of homes on Scafe Road, and the land on which they stand, are well maintained. Yes, there are a few that could use some TLC, some of which are owned by a developer. My neighbourhood is quiet, my neighbours are friendly and caring. I live within walking distance to bus stops, a dentist, a doctor, pharmacies, restaurants, coffee shops and shopping.

This area is home to a lot of large beautiful trees. In season, I can go into my backyard and pick peaches, three different kinds of apples, raspberries and blackberries. Why would I want to live anywhere else?
