China Creek: It’s all about the Commissioners

This is a GREAT time to write the Park Board Commissioners and tell them all the good reasons to keep China Creek Skate Park. This is the address to write to so all the commissioners get your note: pbcomments@vancouver.ca

Use the address above to reach the commissioners directly.

There is a meeting of the Park Board Planning Committee at the Park Board office on December 5th. This is a sub-committee meeting that deals specifically with planning and China Creek is on the agenda. This is not the Park Board meeting where the final decisions will be made – that meeting is slated for some time in early 2007. BUT, approved since it is ultimately the Commissioners who will decide the fate of this park, website like this and they will be given a report by the planners and board members who are on the planning committee, NOW is a good time to get your two cents worth in there – before they all make up their minds!

Then of course we all write again in the lead up time to the final decision meeting in the new year. Write on!
