Agrees coun­cil doesn’t choose

Penticton Herald - - OPINION -

Dear Edi­tor: I agree with Andy Richards let­ter re: Sum­mer­land Coun­cil’s ap­proach to the Banks Cres­cent pro­posal (Okana­gan Week­end, July 29).

A mu­nic­i­pal coun­cil does not have the op­tion of choos­ing one of the var­i­ous pro­pos­als for devel­op­ment but has to deal with what is pro­posed.

In ad­di­tion to the golf course pro­posal there was a pro­posal for Whar­ton Street devel­op­ment which also gar­nered many nay say­ers that were loud and vo­cal.

Town coun­cil has to deal with what is of­fered in spite of the nay say­ers and NIM­BYs and it is their re­spon­si­bil­ity to deal with all the ram­i­fi­ca­tions, lis­ten to the cit­i­zen’s in­put and come up with what they con­sider is best for the com­mu­nity and tax­pay­ers. Dan Zaremba Sum­mer­land
