Letters: If you build it in Richmond, they will come

A Richmond News reader can't believe developers are allowed to build large housing projects without funding for more school space coming first

Dear Editor,

Re: “‘Urgent’ need for more school space,” News, May 25.

So, I think we have seen this before: a city government approves rezoning to allow numerous new condo towers, then, as expected, hundreds of families move in and there are no school spaces for them. 

Hmm, I wonder where all the kids that will move into the Richmond Centre towers will go to school? 

Come on, city council; when a developer applies for rezoning, you have all the power.  Make the rezoning conditional on a community centre and a school being pre-built with every new larger scale redevelopment.
