STREET NAME MADNESS

By on October 26, 2011

Moved to Oliver 30 years ago and in that time my street address is changing to its third address. Would be interesting to know who the “moron” is that came up with this costly idea. Monies are very much needed to build our secondary school, which should at the moment be very much the number one agenda!
When the last mayor and council were elected, there was no mention of changing street numbers to names. Post Office is not interested, if the street addresses are numbers or names.
Changing street addresses will be a nightmare for the Fire Dept. volunteers, police and paramedic. Don’t forget taxi drivers.

    I think this is a good thing. We lived in Winnipeg for 30 years where all the streets are named–much easier to get around than a city with numbers. Names are better in so many ways, including easier to remember and provides character for a town or city! When I go to a city with numbers (ie Edmonton) I am totally lost. Most cities have streets that are named–so much easier to get around. Good work Oliver!!!
