Protect Prince Rupert’s parks

City Hall is proposing that a new condo development be built in Westview Park.

This site includes a children’s playground and greenspace that has been zoned as Park Reserve since 1909. In addition, federal and provincial laws currently protect this location as a registered heron-nesting site.

As a mother of three young children, I do not understand how council is even considering rezoning parkland. We, as a community, have a responsibility to protect and preserve this land for not only our current residents but for future generations to

come.

There will be a public information meeting about this proposed development on October 22 at the Lester Centre at seven p.m. Please take time out of your busy schedules and voice your concerns.

Our city planner and councillors will be in attendance to listen to your comments.
