More people in Oak Bay will mean more vibrancy

There is a need to effectively manage growth so that we minimize potential problems.

Re: More people, more problems (letters June 13).

Agreed, there is a need to effectively manage growth so that we minimize potential problems.

However, the positive benefits of growth should also be considered. To name a few, more people may also mean more vibrancy, more diversity (economic and cultural), more tax revenue, fresh perspectives, more support of local businesses and more attendance and support of local cultural and community events.

More people may quite possibly make Oak Bay an even more pleasant place to live.

The OCP handles a challenging problem in handling diverse opinions of the people as captured in the planning survey, many of whom are in favor of controlled, well-handled growth.
