What is left for the school kids?

I keep looking at the photo of the proposed space needed for the new fire hall and I can’t believe my eyes.

What is left for the kids? This is a piece of green space that once taken away will be gone forever.  Where are the kids to play and run?

While I agree 100 per cent with the need for a more updated fire hall including a training tower, I am 100 per cent against the location moving to the Sidney School site.

I see no reason the fire hall can not stay where it is with a new addition to the south side using the parking lot (which the Town already owns). In North Saanich the original fire hall remains with the new ‘seismic’ portion directly beside connected with a breezeway.

The same concept can be used for Sidney’s fire hall.
