Reader Letters: Canby traffic concerns, tourism survey question
Traffic issues should concern us all
To the editor:
My name is Caleb and I am a Boy Scout of troop 258 and live here in Canby.
I am expressing a concern and view of not only myself but of many of the inhabitants of Canby.
It is evident that the city of Canby is growing. We see it in new housing and industrial developments that have taken place or are zoned to take place.
Though growth and development is good and desired there are a couple issues that cannot be ignored. Traffic is one of these issues.
When a development of houses is placed in an area, that area will see a larger amount of traffic.
Many areas in Canby are not made for much traffic. Before any housing or industrial developments take place there must be the analysis of how those developments will affect the roads and our city's rate of growth.
With more traffic comes more people and we must be able to accommodate for these people.
Thank you for your time.
Survey question raises other questions
To the editor:
The article on Sept. 25 regarding increasing tourism to Canby - on page 3, first paragraph stating that the majority of respondents to a survey questioned whether people who weren't straight or white would want to come here.
Are they saying that tourists who are gay or people of color are not welcome in Canby?
