Township ‘not listening’

While Ms. Kask makes a impressive case for an expansion to the Aldergrove pool project I am afraid it will fall on deaf ears


While Ms. Kask makes a impressive case for an expansion to the Aldergrove pool project (Star letters, Feb. 25), I am afraid it will fall on deaf ears if she is expecting any revisions from our elected officials.

Our Township is on a course that will not, nor cannot, be deterred from its current path. Any projects that require councillors’ approval are usually prefaced by the phrase “staff are supportive of the development proposal.” What staff? Are they residents of Aldergrove, do they pay taxes, shop and utilize the currently available facilities, parks, skating rinks, dog park, etc. Impossible to find out. A quick check of the current council reveals, at least to me, a group of people that will not be in the pool very often.

As to the roof quandary, contact Sprung Structures in Calgary, the world leader in instant facilities, a quick look at the facilities around the stone in Mecca will show a virtual city of temporary living quarters developed by the Canadian company. At least find out the costs rather than quote some highly speculative price for any future roof.
