The town’s population is growing, so removing parkland potential for up to two generations is preposterous.
All for the sake of a few Wally World slides. And, for even fewer people, a marina
Most towns throughout North America want more park lands and are adding. Why does city council insist upon going backwards? This was not your mandate when you were elected.
Is there more than meets the eye?
This project will benefit a very few, as opposed to the majority of Penticton citizens being opposed. I would take a guess in the 75-80 per cent range opposed.
And then we (the taxpayers) have to pay to use those services again. Yet, we have paid for the park lands over much time.
Let that developer find private land to cobble together their version of Wally World.
And why are they not?
Is the monetary reward for them that big that they cannot afford to give it up on the park land, and find private land?
We are not opposed to progress, but this is not progress, but rather regress.
Save our park lands.
