LETTER: Leery of too much high-density development in Maple Ridge

There’s already enough multi-family projects on the books and too much traffic on the roads

Dear Editor,

I just received this letter [yesterday] in the mail [from WestUrban Developments Ltd. seeking public input on a proposed 54-unit apartment complex in the 21300-block of Dewdney Trunk Road].

I feel like the majority of Maple Ridge residents are against building “up.”

UNRELATED LETTER: Justice for Jassi might finally be coming

We only have so much land around here, and now with the apartments being built around the 222nd and 224th Street area, I think there’s a trend now growing to start building as many townhouses/apartments as we can.

I’m inclined to disagree with shoving as many people into this city as possible, Lougheed [Highway] and Dewdney [Trunk Road] are already hell in rush hour.

Jordan Petrini, Maple Ridge
