Peachland taxpayers are already paying $3.1 million for Turner Park, which was purchased in 2021. We want to use it as soon as possible.
Outside consultants have provided three options for the park. Only one of these options, Option 2, restores the historic softball field at Turner Park in 2022, provides a full-sized soccer field and little league field, and can be done within the 2022 operating budget.
Options 1.1 and 1.2 both want to create a new softball field by expanding the old little league field at the northwest corner of Turner Park.
This will require the excavation/removal of the current toboggan hill and lacrosse box. There is no money to pay for this in 2022, it is unnecessary, and it will delay children’s and taxpayers’ use of the park.
We want Option 2, which will allow Peachland children and taxpayers to use Turner Park as soon as possible.
Please vote for Option 2 on the consultant’s survey, which can be found here:
Please sign the citizen petition for Option 2, which can be found here: https://chng.it/mdLypMPmJ8
The survey and petition end Jan. 31, with results being presented to council soon afterwards.
