Letter: Hold referendum on Mackenzie Landing

City of Revelstoke should let Revelstoke residents have final say on Mackenzie Landing development in Arrow Heights.

Editor,

I don’t want to be misconstrued as negative, but just because David Evans is jumping through hoops like a poodle at all levels of government and succeeding somewhat, doesn’t make his Revelstoke-saving developments right for this location.

Do the democratic thing and hold a public referendum for all people of Revelstoke. In addition hold a bordering property owners vote to see if this is what this peaceful, quiet area of our town wants.

Don’t let government decide. Let the people that are impacted decide what goes on in their back yards.

It’s not always about the money. Take a breath, look around and don’t assume we all want your developments. I think I can speak for most old Revelstokians: enough greed, let the town catch up!

Yours truly,

Daren N Corneliuson

Revelstoke
