We have been residents of Gibsons for more than 40 years and wish to extend our compliments to the Gibsons council under the capable leadership of Mayor Wayne Rowe.
Old, divisive distractions characterized by such things as Gospel Rock have been set aside and a new progressive spirit is apparent in our town.
Driving along Gibsons Way, in the upper village, one can observe at least seven sites where major renovations have recently been completed, construction is in progress or site preparation for future work is evident.
In the lower village commercial area, the first new construction in many years is now underway and a $1.2 million harbour improvement has been completed. As well, several new businesses and a public art gallery have recently appeared in the harbour area.
We believe development of the Gibsons waterfront, to attract visitors and residents, will make an important contribution to the municipal tax base and increased commercial activity. It can become the town's greatest asset.
