***FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE*** Could a last-minute rumble about non-engagement in Kitsilano drown the city’s megaplan? Vancouver’s Park Board Commissioners will be in the hot seat January 29, 2018 when they …
The Park Board did not directly inform or consult Kits about its plan to build a huge “city-wide destination pool” with a “sport-training focus” as part of a community centre and/or rink renewal.
Our “community” centre is slated to become a “city” centre? No thanks.
“These community centres are just that, for the community.”
We and others spoke out against the plan, which contributed to it not being approved on Jan 29, 2018! The plan will be back up for possible approval soon, likely in March. Email the Park Board.
“As a Kits homeowner who lives across the street from the proposed new Aquatic Centre, I am 100% opposed to this plan.”
“I feel that a large training facility will be detrimental to the community, not just because of the potential loss of green space and “community feel”, but also due to the large influx of traffic that will result.”
