Readers write - presentation to Coldstream Council

Hello everyone,

Please make time to attend the Coldstream Council Meeting on MONDAY, APRIL 25 at 6 PM at the Coldstream Municipal Offices on Kal Lake Rd. where we are doing a Powerpoint presentation about our concerns regarding the OSFS's proposed amphitheatre
in the gully in front of Okanagan College. Pat Andrews is doing the talking for the PPT. We will be first to go at 6 PM sharp for 10 minutes followed by comments and questions from the council members. It should take no more than 1/2 hour. 

It is extremely important that we have huge support in terms of numbers and passionate opposition, so please plan to attend. 

We will be adding up the number of signatures on the petitions  this weekend so please get your numbers to me by tomorrow. You can either drop off your sheets to 9085 College Dr. or give them to me (Joan) at the meeting. 

The tide is turning vs the OSFS, but we need to make sure we do NOT let up the pressure. 

If you need them, there are extra copies of the blank petition forms and flyers at the front desk at Kal Fitness on the clip board. 

Thanks for all you have done to help our cause. We must get this thing stopped once and for all,

Connie, Joan, et al.

Determined citizens will push back: "The effort to save Skaha Lake Park from commercial development was back in full swing on Saturday.

Members of the Save Skaha Park Society held an event at the Penticton park to celebrate Earth Day and launch a membership drive.

"We thought saving the park is a natural fit with Earth Day," said Lisa Martin, the spokesperson for the society. "And the main thing we are opposed to is the loss of green space and the impact on wildlife here including turtles, ducks and fish."

The society is a citizen group that has vocally opposed a city-endorsed plan to allow a commercial waterslide operation, by Trio Marine Group, inside the public park.

Trio also has plans to develop the Skaha marina.

Opponents have rallied outside City Hall against the project, created a human chain at the park and collected more than 8,000 signatures on a petition.

Saturday's event featured speakers from the society, musicians and walking tours around the entire perimeter of the park.

Dr. Gerry Karr, with the society, talked about how a big waterslide would ruin the park and that once the land was gone they would never get it back again.

He and others also emphasized the importance of the membership drive, for 10,000 members in 100 days.

Having that membership, they say, will help if the civil suit the society filed against the city and Trio ends up in court."
