Letters: Pitch for horseshoe pitch

Previous editorial on horseshoe petition is questioned by letter writer

In the first four paragraphs of Our View ‘Save a little green for us’ editorial, you laud and praise current council and try to make it sound as if the previous council did not listen to the concerns of residents.

You negate something positive being offered to our community that must be put on the exact same level of import and societal significance as the sports fields right across the street from where they are being proposed.

Get real. A sports team that uses the fields across the street has already asked to have parking in the exact same place where the horseshoe club has indicated parking as needed.

To me this sounds right and complementary, not anything negative.  More good people energy around more good people.

This was looked at by the previous council, and also by the public-community grants review committee and then forwarded to council for vote and passed.

Full public access and proper integration has always been the motto of every piece of paper I’ve read from this group. I was on the community grants review committee in 2009, 2010 and 2011.

This wonderful horseshoe pitch was looked at and accepted for the pure thing it is.

I was impressed by Mayor Milne when he interrupted the flow and tasked administration with the next step in doing whatever is necessary to work things out.

I feel that the absolute best place is the place asked for on Sooke River Road.

Opponents to this, get your facts straight.
