Albeit the notice sits on page 44 of the January 08, 2014 edition of the St. Albert Gazette and can therefore be easily overlooked, it at least gives residents the opportunity to voice their opinion if they want their green space to be disturbed to erect a bike skills park.
Lessons learned from the Akinsdale and Erin Ridge fiascos should hopefully alert Grandin Park residents of the havoc government decisions can cause residents.
If you are a resident of the affected area reading this, notify others through any means available – social media, flyers, phone, door knocking.
Even those not directly affected should voice their opinion, or at least follow the proceedings as one never knows what special interest group is lurking in the background with an eye on your neighbourhood. Support these residents with their preference and hopefully they will support your neighbourhood with yours.
Reiterating the opportunities given to be “heard”:
January 15th, 2014 – Sir George Simpson School – 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
January 18th, 2014 – Grandin Clubhouse – 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. (odd hours for those that work)
