Dear Editor, I am so annoyed, I could just spit. Once again, a road block has been found to prevent Aldergrove from getting the centre we deserve.
First we get hit on the size of the pool that was wanted, and now council is looking at making more cuts, and hit us again.
Get your heads straight, folks: when the LEC needed more money for an unexpected expansion/upgrade, it was found, and with no consultation with those of us footing the bill. It just happened.
The community of Aldergrove may be small, but I get the distinct impression that this council is not including the potential usage from the growing residential area east of Station Road.
I will concede that the need for including an ice arena is questionable, as we do already have one. It may need some upgrades, but we do have one. The pool was the big thing, and we got hit on that, and now they want to hit us again. We deserve this facility.
We can't water our lawns in the summer, we don't have the "lake" in Aldergrove Lake Regional Park (thank you, council), we can't have a pool in our backyard in the summer for the kids to play in, (we have to take them somewhere else, and maybe pay for that plus the cost of gas and other expenses, all of which benefit other areas of Langley or its outskirts but not Aldergrove), we almost lost approval for hanging baskets (another nickel-and-dime decision) in the Aldergrove high street, and now... Let's see... is there any other way that we can hit this community? Debbie Atkinson, Debbie Atkinson, Aldergrove Aldergrove
