Don’t tear the town apart

We join the chorus of objectors to the inane idea of a shopping plaza on VAA land.

We join the chorus of objectors to the inane idea of a shopping plaza on VAA land.

The beauty of our Town of Sidney, is that it has a main street, local shops,and pride of community. Strip malls are certainly not the answer as most residents moved here because of the local shopping. Certainly the VAA should be honouring the town, not trying to tear it apart. There are enough creative minds who could find better use of that corner.  Why not move the skate park there? Although we are quite in favour of keeping the skate park where it is.
