Planting trees on Beverly a great improvement

Duncan – While I cannot comment on the plan to build a roundabout at Drinkwater and Lane Roads, I would like to say that I was extremely pleased to see that North Cowichan had planted trees along Beverly Street.

A number of years ago many cottonwood trees were cut down to make way for the parking lot at the Cowichan Sportsplex, which I thought was a bad move.

The roundabout at Beverly Street and Lakes Road has been very successful in improving the flow of traffic in that area and it is a pleasure to see, at all times of the year. Trees and flowers enhance our environment, and I am happy to see that the Municipality of North Cowichan is trying to make Beverly Street a more attractive thoroughfare than it has been for quite some time.
