Open House - 122nd Avenue
I am interested in this improvement project as a cyclist and from another point of view. I have been advocating for the improvement (greening/naturalizing/addition of trees) to the front/streetscape of Maple Ridge Secondary School. Of all the secondary schools in the district, MRSS is woeful in this regard. The predominant features of the building are traffic signs, cracked pavement and fencing. It seems that after all the renovations to the school in recent years, the builders forgot to finish (to landscape)! Good architecture and urban design and landscaping can either inspire or dispirit. You might have a look at 122nd, specifically the frontage of MRSS, from this point of view.
