This mayor and council has pushed through some expensive, ill-informed decisions, that we will all have to pay for and live with for a very long time.
I’m sure we all have our favourites.
Is the Skaha Bluffs boundary extension a good idea?
The City of Penticton does not have a community wildfire protection plan but we are being asked to place 180 families in an area that interfaces with wildfires. After the Carmi fire people could not get fire insurance, building stagnated.
The donated 150 acres to B.C. Parks, within our city boundary, will give the city a carbon tax credit. Will that allow less work to be done in town on environmental issues? Will this 150 acres become part of the city park inventory and make it easier for the city to development the lower city parks? Is that why Trio is being kept on at the marina for 2018? Are we in for bluff climbing accident liability, considerably more expensive than a picnic related injury claim?
We can not afford more mistakes environmentally, financially, or for the the overall health of this city.
Let’s sit back, put this on hold for the next council before adding Skaha Bluffs to the long list of poorly researched, costly mistakes. To do that you must fill in the form and get it to City Hall.
