Master Plan far too late

Dear Editor:

It was encouraging to read that Penticton City Council has passed the Mayors proposal for a Parks and Recreation master plan (Herald, Sept. 9).

This initiative is a response to the realization that the lease arrangement at Skaha Lake Park was a mistake on the part of those involved in its concept and approval.

Sadly, while the master plan may help avoid such tragic mistakes in future, it does nothing to change the huge mistake already made.

I hope that all those involved in the lease proposal at the east-end of Skaha Lake Park will take the master plan as a signal to re-evaluate the decisions already made, and to take steps toward a referendum to once and for all settle the issue.
