LETTERS: No need to build on Skaha

Who on earth thinks this would be a good idea anyway? To build duplexes, triplexes or fourplexes is just not appropriate.

It has come to my attention, sadly, that the City of Penticton feels they should allow construction on Skaha Lake to the east of Sudbury Beach and west of Discovery Park on the lake.

Who on earth thinks this would be a good idea anyway? To build duplexes, triplexes or fourplexes is just not appropriate.

With the amount of home construction now going on in our beautiful city, the question should be, how are our resources going to be able to handle the amount of people that will soon be purchasing these new homes?

There are 600 homes alone at Skaha Hills on Penticton Indian Band land, the new seniors homes going in between South Main and Skaha Lake Road.  The hospital and medical resources are already full to capacity. There is not enough employment here for the citizens that live in Penticton now, let alone newcomers. To build more homes on Skaha Lake would just be a shame, and an asinine move on the part of the city.
