There is value in residents’ opinions

Re: Focus group suggested to discuss buskers, Feb. 10 edition.

I was pleased to learn council plans to establish a focus group to discuss the issue of street buskers and vendors in downtown Mission.

As a resident of the downtown community, I am actively interested in its development, and have recently become a member of the Mission Downtown Area Residents’ Association, so that I can become more involved in matters concerning the neighbourhood.

I trust all council members will see the clear value of having residents participate in focus group discussions of street buskers, and any other issues affecting downtown Mission.
