Ugliness of Vast Chunks
Lot M, Summer evening, 2013
"Regrettably, there is not one statement about the importance of aesthetics or the ugliness of vast chunks of land being utilized for parking lots. Surely aesthetic considerations are an integral part of any policy dealing with parking."
B.N. Rosenblood to Dr. H.G. Thode, 25 June, 1969
re. Evaluation of Acres Report on Traffic and Parking, April 1969
We're heading back out to share the history of this former floodplain/nature sanctuary, and take a look at the rehabilitated future of this contested site in McMaster's west campus. Can we really depave Paradise? It's happening!
What do all these people have in common? They've taken the guided tour of west campus with Restore Cootes! Be like them and come out Friday at 12:30 PM to tour the remnants of Coldspring Valley Nature Sanctuary, McMaster Parking Lot M depaved, Ancaster/Coldwater Creek, and other sites of historical and research interest.
