More ef­fort needed to use busi­ness park

Cape Breton Post - - COMMENT -

The North­side Bsui­ness Park has been sadly ne­glected over the past num­ber of years by the re­gional gov­ern­ment which hasn’t been pro­moted the use of va­cant build­ings. Surely some ef­fort could be made by area coun­cil­lors as well as fed­eral rep­re­sen­ta­tives and MLAs, who could ap­proach fed­eral and pro­vin­cial gov­ern­ments. There has to be some use for th­ese va­cant build­ings.

The Keata Pharma build­ing is a great as­set. The com­pany wasn’t around long enough to fill a pre­scrip­tion.

This park is fully ser­viced and is lo­cated next to the only com­pos­ite high school in the prov­ince. There’s lots of room there to build or lease train­ing fa­cil­i­ties and maybe we wouldn’t need a new $30 mil­lion cor­rec­tional cen­tre.

I hope Sy­d­port will suc­ceed to its full po­ten­tial be­cause that would help the en­tire is­land econ­omy. But let’s not let the park be­come a waste­land or be ne­glected to­tally.

Con­grat­u­la­tions on open­ing a re­cy­cling cen­tre but we do need more. Charles Kea­gan North Syd­ney
