GuelphToday received the following letter to the editor from reader Sheila Mcclelland in response to our article The 'do we look stupid' challenge at planning meetings.

Regarding the highrise at the Wellington lot. Nothing being built should be more than five storeys tall.

Creating wind tunnels and blocking out the sun and sky is a Toronto answer to keep developers happy.

Low rise is the best answer going forward. Community is important.

Tornadoes and power outages are more of a problem when the buildings are too high. Think, what then.
