Letter: Keep McArthur Island the jewel that it is


McArthur Island is a recreation jewel in Kamloops. Let’s keep it that way.

Other municipalities would love to have an area such as this set aside for recreation. Just because the former golf course space is vacant doesn’t mean we have to forge blindly ahead and develop it. Let’s take time to ensure we get it right.

I also believe the original development on McArthur Island was done by referendum. I suggest mayor and council take this into consideration before any final decision is made on the fate of the former golf course land.

If the Kamloops Naturalist Club wants an area to do something special, it should be allotted public open space (nature areas) in the city. Every area of the city has public open space that can be used to bring nature close to everyone.
