LETTER: Wake up before the housing disaster

Editor: Mayors and councils in all municipalities must take control and put restrictions on developers regarding where and what will be constructed. Developers are not concerned with what is best or tasteful in a particular area.

Examples: Brentwood, a small area now choked off with extreme towers.

Burnaby Mountain (the SFU area called UniverCity), nothing in keeping with the style of the university. Their buildings were not to be built above the treeline, and from the east view there is this ugly gray scar (towers) on the mountaintop.

Some apartment units being built are so small, one will have to go outside to change their mind.

Folks, please wake up before more disasters occur.

Etta Chisholm, Burnaby
