Back when Google visited the region Westhill's access roads were still under construction. It's sort of neat how using streetview allows you to see which roads have been built since circa 2010.

Westhills overall is a shamble IMO. I am very concerned for people buying there and hoping their place retains value.

Until the next windstorm causes them to crash on the houses below. It doesn't look like much remains to anchor them anymore.

It is akin to a less mobile, mobile home park.

I really like this steel (aluminum?) fencing (foreground) we see around lots now. I think it's a smart choice, so much nicer than a wood fence (background) that'll need maintenance help in 10-15 years.

Oh, sure. Tell it to these people:

http://www.globaltvb...0082/story.html

metal gates in front of people's homes have begun disappearing all over East Vancouver, and some are already turning up in scrap yards.

One resident, who said her parents had their gate stolen on Wednesday, and her sister noticed many homes along East 77th had also suffered a similar fate.

I don't think that scrap-yard manager will win any customer-service merit awards soon. ;)

They need to install those screws like they use in washroom stalls, they only turn one way or require a very special tool to loosen them.

Getting back on topic, I think I need to go out to Westhills and take a look at the whole area before I can pass judgement on the place.

If even a moderate size earthquake hits in the next 10-15 years I think fence maintenance will be the least of the worries to the folks in that part of Westhills.:eek:

You know the chances of that are like 1 in 20,000 or worse? OT, but I wish someone would publish actual earthquake damage estimates. Everyone always likes to say "it's not when, but if", but the chances of a huge quake hitting once specific area hard enough to create lots of damages is very, very, very small. Look at Christchurch, even that quake hit a small area of the city only. So yes, one is going to hit BC real bad in the next 50 or 75 years, but the chance of it being old town Victoria is very small, and a quake that does damage there will not do much to an area just 10 or 15 km away.

What I was suggesting (apparently not very successfully) is that based on that photo, it looks like it wouldn't take much more than the rumble of a large-ish truck to bring those condos and the houses built on those rock piles crashng down. Langford has lost at least one house built too close to a cliffside just from strong winter rains alone. Much of this looks like it could go the same way; although maybe that photo is just taken from a particularly dangerous angle.

As long as the condo foundation is properly screwed to the bedrock I'm sure it will be fine.

But then you would be required to hire someone to put your fence in.
