Duncan food bank needs to move from Garden Street

I have a big problem with this food bank and its location.

Re: the Duncan/North Cowichan food bank on Garden Street

I have a big problem with this food bank and its location. This street is mainly residential, with some commercial/residential properties at the North Cowichan end of Garden Street.

The food bank has traffic that far exceeds every household on this street on a daily basis! I pay to live in a residential area with street parking in front of my house, which I never have.

Now I have to deal with 100 cars and people coming and going non-stop all day, every day.

Not to mention the type of persons this outlet attracts regularly. This site is the cause of several police calls, drunk and disorderly, as well as the disturbance and theft that the area has.

Nobody seems to care, but the citizens of Garden Street. Why is this allowed to remain where it is? If I had 100 people coming and going from my residence on a daily basis, taking up the entire street, and the several police calls, I bet I would no longer be living here. But the food bank is exempt from any bylaws, or complaints?

This food bank needs to go!
