Safety + Emergency Preparedness
I have long been interested in planning and environmental matters, having spent most of my working life in the Department of Urban Planning and an associated research centre at UCLA. I retired several years ago. I have lived in Victoria for almost eight years, moved to Rockland over four years ago, and have been on the RNA Board over the past three years, serving on the Land Use Committee. With its great old mansions, mature trees, landscapes and streets which provide such lovely walks, Rockland’s unique character deserves to be protected. It would be a tragedy to see the area damaged by the further loss of architecturally significant homes and inappropriate development. Victoria has a reputation as a beautiful city, and Rockland must be a significant part of this, so its conservation will benefit not only Rockland residents, but the city as a whole. I would like to continue to help the Rockland Neighbourhood Association’s work in this area.
