This is not the same article that I had first read, but it's similar and
communicates the horrendous red tape that was eventually the downfall
and failure of the park. I know of many other business ventures,
particularly in the valley, that were shot down by our city. I believe
Sudbury can do better. Can our counsellors please get their heads out of
the sand and start helping to build dreams instead of creating
SPLASH PAD ARTICLE
Marcel Lemieux That is why a complete overhaul is
necessary but not too many candidates up for election seem to care
enough to make a difference,
Carol Bye Our present city councillors NEED to be
Marcel Lemieux With someone who cares and will keep costs
in-line with other cities
Robert T. Kirwan It is really hard to believe that
someone who just wanted to provide a great attraction to the area would
be forced to jump through so many hoops in order to realize his dream.
One would think that it is the objective of the city staff and
councillors to block development rather than promote it.
Marcel Lemieux Well that's what it seems like doesn't it
and there are dozens of other examples as we all know
Brent Donnelly Wrong end of Sudbury!!!!!
Mary-Anne Boulet I love the part about the necessity for
an "illumination' study to see about the effect on traffic...a real
shame that that wasn't done at the Terry Fox park (Lasalle Extensio) or
Delki Dozzi park (Big Nickel Road). The lights from those parks are
blinding at dusk and night. But, oh, I forgot, the city bore the cost of
those projects and so didn't require 'illumination' studies. Claude did
his best but as usual Sudbury had its head in the sand (to be polite).
Same thing happened to the group who wanted to build a drag strip in the
area and also to the group that wanted to build a true Sportsplex in
Sudbury...yes, we're definitely at the wrong end of town...
Brent Donnelly Sick and tired of our councillors sitting
there and just going with the flow. Remember could be a lot of new faces
but that's on us!!! Let's get the big push brooms out!!!!!
Carol Bye So right Brent!
Lynn Langlois Our councillors shave been in power for too
long folks. They band together and vote everything down. It's time to
shake things up people and you'll have your opportunity at this fall's
Carol Bye People need to speak out loud and clear to the
new candidates and let them know you won't be very happy if they do
things the same old way. Anytime I'm in other cities I realize just how
backwards the old school keeps Sudbury. They seem to think they have a
God- given right to decide what we should have based on what they want
or need without any accountability to us.
Dale McCarthy Disgusting!
