Letter to the Editor: Secondary suite support

I’m not sure who Area F Director, Wendy Booth has been speaking to, certainly not me, or those I know in Windermere.

Dear Editor,

I’m not sure who Area F Director, Wendy Booth has been speaking to, certainly not me, or those I know in Windermere. I wholeheartedly support secondary suites in this community for the following reasons: 1.  They offer young people an affordable opportunity to live in Windermere; 2.  Young families living here will help to maintain the viability of our school; 3.  Affordable rents assist those saving to buy in Windermere, and help existing property owners to be able to purchase their homes; 4.  Secondary suites allow for aging in place; 6.  The regional district may garner more revenue as water service users increase.

I don’t see a problem as secondary suites help homeowners, homebuyers, renters, the community at large, and the regional district.  I wholeheartedly support this progressive move. Incidentally, I spoke to a local property manager who said not a single day goes by that there isn’t a request for lodging in Windermere. It is the preferred choice for most renters.
