Yeah, that’s super cool. I’d love to see some summer shots when your schedule permits.

Our strata AGM was supposed to happen Monday, but not enough people showed up to the zoom meeting for it to move forward.

 

But a couple things that got brought up:

 

A couple days ago, someone from 844 Johnson somehow sneaked into the lobby while garbage or recycling crews were moving dumpsters at 6am and stole someone's amazon package. Security in the area has been a major issue, but everyone knows it was bound to be.

 

Also some dumbass was drunk on the roof and decided to climb over the rail in order to take a selfie with the inner harbour behind them. So now the doors to the roof are locked after 11pm for everyone. The pet owners who use the dog run on the roof are not pleased about having to go out on Johnson Street if their dog needs to go outside in the middle of the night.

Hilarious. So basically, it's like:

 

"Hello fellow neighbour; I'll volunteer to help you manage your half-million dollar condo, will you support me?"

"Sorry, that would entail me opening up a new browser tab and I don't really feel like it right now".

Communication has been lacking so far. When they locked the midblock walkway gates from 5pm - 9am, there was no heads up anywhere. People just suddenly couldn't open the gate with their fob.  When the roof was reopened after the COVID restrictions eased, there was no notification. For the AGM, people either received a envelope of info in their mailbox or it was emailed, but there wasn't any reminders leading up to the meeting.  I took a half-day off work in order to attend the zoom meeting. Now I have to take another half-day when they attempt the meeting again next week... And that's if I even get notification about the redo.

City of Victoria will not be supporting Chard's submission to close the midblock walkway until the city secures the easements over the neighbouring property. 

 

City staff recommendation will be to leave the midblock walkway to be fully open to the public from 7am to 10pm. 

 

Strata council wants Vivid/Yates residents to write letters to council for it to be closed.

 

I just don't see how they're going to get much support from owners in Vivid when they currently shut down access to the pathway to everyone except the townhome owners from 5pm to 9am and have completely shutdown entrance access to the midblock door.

 

The original intention was that all Vivid owners would have access to the mid-block walkway all the time and the mid block door was the main access to the main bike room.

These sort of narrow, dark mid-block walkways aren't really much of a public amenity, especially considering the current state of downtown. I can certainly understand why nearby residents would want them locked at all times.

Bottom line is that downtown is starting to be a **** show.

The walkways are a treasure in this city and I support this move. On a side note I have a photo show on at Koffi...
