Well this slipped by unnoticed it seems...

 

In addition to a couple requests to fix up two heritage homes, the Province brought a proposal for alterations to the Legislature lawn to the Heritage Advisory Panel. Note that no permits are required for the Province's proposal, so their request for feedback from the Panel is out of courtesy. Complete agenda package is online here: https://www.victoria...ion- June 9.pdf

 

The proposal would widen the sidewalk, add pathways to "square off" the Legislature lawn, add benches and raised lawns for additional informal seating, add security bollards at the driveway entrance, and increase the plaza area around the cenotaph to accommodate larger crowds and add perimeter seating. One tree will be removed and replaced with a new Dogwood, and the Sir James Douglas monument will be relocated within one of the new raised lawns.

Again because this is a project of the Province, there are no City approvals required so I have no idea what the timeline is here

i'm in favour.  make that as pretty as we can.  add some haunted tours too.  even if you have to make up the stories.  too early for basi/virk ghosts?  what about the logsplitter?

As much as I think this is a worthwhile project, is this the best time to be spending provincial taxpayer dollars on aesthetics?

Will be used on the tree that is to be removed.

The upgrades looks solid. And the security improvements are necessary in a world that’s getting stranger by the day.
