Oak Bay council’s setback decision affected pathway size

Council responsible for the space limitations on school pathways

Re: Extra half-metre a sticking point for O.B. High paths (News, Oct. 30)

This is a great example of where leadership causes its own problems.

Mayor and council had Oak Bay High set back from Cranmore for six or so homes that felt they would be in a shadow once the new school was finished.

If that setback had not been allowed, I am sure there would be at least 60 centimetres to spare for their pathways.

Once again we are reminded that our mayor and council need to take the time to look at what is better for the greater good instead of what is better for a few.
