LETTERS: BMX’ers tread elsewhere

I am questioning the feasibility of the proposed BMX Track at 630 Munson Mountain Rd. in Penticton.

I am a concerned resident of Penticton and I am questioning the feasibility of the proposed BMX Track at 630 Munson Mountain Rd.

Munson Mountain is a popular tourist view point; it is surrounded by a thriving agricultural haven for vineyards and small ground crops, orchards and bees to keep all the farmers in business. There is an exciting resurgence of agriculture in the ALR all around Munson Mountain.

Keep Munson Mountain as a jewel for Penticton, to enjoy and profit from its natural beauty and agricultural farmland. There are other more suitable areas for a BMX track. Disrupting the agricultural climate with a BMX track makes no sense.

I trust city council will give this respectful consideration and protect and preserve agriculture. Keep this piece of farmland in A (agriculture) this is not compatible for a BMX track.
