LETTER: City of Penticton’s legacy

Privatizing parks, adding parking meters is not something the City of Penticton should be proud of.

Our parks and waterfronts are treasures that  defines Penticton as “a place to stay forever.”

So why is city council so hell bent on degrading  these treasures by planting meters, a form of taxation, at every spot that gives us citizens and visitors a place of joy and respite?

It is a sad thing when people are burdened with these unnecessary taxes to enjoy the beaches and parks. And,  metering Skaha park users while privatizing a huge parcel of the park?  How shameful. The legacy of Penticton may surely  change to, “a place to PAY forever.”

It is not a legacy by which I would be proud.
