Town council is considering a new bylaw to permit coach housing … Is this what we need in Ladysmith?

Is anyone going to pay double taxes on their property? More water usage … More garbage collection … Will the home owner who has one on their property pay for that too? I think not … We don’t need this in Ladysmith, maybe Victoria, as there are about 50 low-income houses in town now called condos for sale or rent already … Let them buy or rent one and move into one of them or a trailer park if they need a place to live …

Here is a cartoon I drew that I believe the new coach house will look like. Do you want to see this in your neighbour’s yard or across the alley from you? I don’t.
