If you were at the skating trail meeting on Thursday, you may not have been able to get a comment sheet because they had nowhere near enough for the more than 150 people who showed up. If you were able to pick one up, you may have already sent it in.
If not, we were told that e-mail submissions would be acceptable and their content would be included in the final report if received by the consultants and city staff by Thursday, June 12th.
Questions on the Comments Sheet are ...
1. Looking at the preliminary concept for the ice trail in Colonel Samuel Smith Park, what are the pros and benefits of the concept? What are the cons or challenges of the concept?
2. Looking at the preliminary concept for the ice trail, what changes would you recommend?
3. What opportunities do you see for the ice trail in Colonel Samuel Smith Park?
4. Would you be interested in participating in a working group for the ice trail?
5. Additional comments.
Bear in mind, they are asking for comments based on the notion that the trail is a done deal. Any comments you may wish to make are acceptable and do not need to follow the sheet's format.
This is not over yet and there is still room for the community to continue to voice its opinions. The comments we send in are very important. They need to know how we feel. We were told that all comments would be valued by city staff and used in the consultants' report.
When you send them in, please copy the people listed below.
Susan Hall, Lura Consulting
Shelley Carroll, Budget Chief
Joe Mihevc, Parks, Forestry and Recreation Committee
