District right to preserve lot 4616 for the future

I cannot stress enough how important it is to protect our public lands for all to enjoy.

Re: ” Invermere hopes to secure parkland,” October 19

I would like to congratulate Mayor Taft and council on their persistence on lot 4616. Thanks to their hard work, it looks as though one year from now, Invermere will have a very large park within our boundaries.

I cannot stress enough how important it  is to protect our public lands for all to enjoy. My hope is that future councils will continue to represent this community in the same manner. Although developing the land may have provided short term gain for some individuals, protection of this public asset will do much more to help this community prosper now and into the future.
