Under these new agreements offered to Trio, the green space in Skaha Lake Park has no legal protection.
The mayor claims the Parks Master Plan Steering Committee will set guidelines. The planning committee cannot enact laws to call for a referendum on park use, only city council can do that.
In 2019, the council of the day, will be under legal obligation to offer Trio the means to revitalize, enhance and commercialize the park.
This with public input, of course. And, we all know how well that has worked over the years. City hall has worked long and hard to give away our parks. There is no miracle on Main Street.
