“THE PROCESS TO ESTABLISH IF THE EMCON LOT IN ROSSLAND IS THE RIGHT PLACE FOR A SKATEPARK WILL CONTINUE DESPITE CONTINUED OPPOSITION FROM A GROUP OF CONCERNED RESIDENTS.
SO SAYS MAYOR GREG GRANSTROM.
HE SAYS THE EMCON SITE HAS NOT OFFICIALLY BEEN APPROVED FOR SUCH USE AND THE LOCAL SKATEPARK ASSOCIATION NEEDS TO DRIVE THE PROCESS TO FIND OUT IF THE COMMUNITY WANTS IT THERE.
GRANSTROM SAYS ONLY WHEN THE SKATEPARK SOCIETY HAS DONE ITS HOMEWORK WILL COUNCIL CONSIDER ANY PROPOSAL.
BUT SOME RESIDENTS SAYS IT WAS WRONG FOR ROSSLAND COUNCIL TO UNILATERALLY EARMARK THE SITE FOR A SKATEPARK WHEN THE WHOLE COMMUNITY SHOULD BE INVOLVED IN DECIDING WHAT IT’S BEST FUTURE USE SHOULD BE.” source mountainfm.net
