Possibly a little controversial for a VV audience but my latest post looks at how we can make Victoria's urban villages safer through the removal of parking on the main streets by opening up parking on residential only parking streets.

Latest post on Sidewalking Victoria is up, this time I am looking at the first of a few ideas for helping local businesses, A Parking Spot Auction. I am also offering free advertising to the first two local restaurants that take me up on it for the next six months.

The second in the series on restarting business in Victoria looks at the recent impact on the arts scene but also links it to tourism and restaurants. Have a read and let me know what you think!

My latest article is up and for likely the last time I am looking at ideas for getting business going downtown. In this post I look at tourism.

A good take on it for sure.
I would note that the only thing worse than ground-level offices is a ground-level gym.
No one in the gym wants to feel like they're on display, and I don't want to be guilt-tripped when I walk by eating a fancy pastry...

Is a fitness facility with mirrored "windows" better or worse, then?
As I mentioned before, if that fitness facility is a hot yoga studio with a powerful exhaust vent blowing onto the sidewalk, that is a new kind of fresh hell.

Ground level bike storage is pretty poor as well.

Or perhaps more accurately, a not-so-fresh hell.

Just finished my latest article, this time on things to do in Point Roberts, Washington this time of year. Have a read and let me know what you think!
Washington Gov. Jay Inslee is asking Canada for help with U.S. residents of a small peninsula who have been marooned by the pandemic-related closure of the U.S.-Canada border.
Point Roberts is part of Washington state, but it juts out from the Canadian mainland south of Vancouver and it is not connected to the rest of Washington. About 1,300 Washington residents live there.
point roberts population density: 246 per square mile.
lower mainland (canada): 1,905 per square mile.
delta: about 1,600 per square mile.

“All the other restaurants have closed down, the golf course is closed,” Hansen said. “Quite honestly, I probably should have just closed.”
zero infections in point roberts but the economy has been collapsed by government.
