Letter: Aldergrove pool design not forward thinking

Artist’s rendering of what a covered pool in Aldergrove will look like. On Saturday, residents will gather at the site of the new recreation centre to rally for a larger indoor pool.

Editor: The following is an open letter to the Township of Langley mayor and council.

It is unfortunate that I am writing this letter now, and not when you had the grand  announcement  of the new Aldergrove pool — which I attended — because now it is a done deal.  In my opinion this should have first gone to  the people of Aldergrove and Langley because from all I have heard and read, Aldergrove wanted an indoor pool as promised by Mayor Froese.

This is very disappointing. Also to not have the foresight to build a pool that could be enclosed at a later date when funds are available is not forward thinking and not cost-effective.
