So much spent improving, beautifying, but entrances need improvement

Our Town of Sylvan Lake has spent so much time, planning and money to make a wonderful impression on town folk and visitors.

Dear Editor,

Our Town of Sylvan Lake has spent so much time, planning and money to make a wonderful impression on town folk and visitors. The new walkways, plantings, flower gardens, street lights etc. are beautiful.

After making all these efforts to create a wonderful impression when coming to our town I wonder why, when driving into town on Highway 20 north towards the traffic circle, we are assaulted by the ugly site of a wrecking yard cluttered with rusting old vehicles piled up and left this way for years? Am I the only one who notices that this is totally out of place in a town wanting to put its best foot forward?

I won’t spend more time pointing out the large old blue inn as we enter our town.

Lynn McNish,

Sylvan Lake
