Slack Point park a plus

Ladysmith Letter to the Editor

Editor:

 

Whomever proposed an RV park at Slack Point, is right on the money.

 

Think like a tourist for a bit, driving  the Island, come across our town,  great park, interesting looking town, sheltered harbour and great location.

 

Now where do you stay? We have a talented parks and rec team and public works with the equipment.

 

Water, power and sewer (which could be linked to a pump out for marine traffic), add a camp host to maintain the area. Now you have some tourists that can make our town part of their holiday. We can still walk our dogs down to the point for a swim.

 

A campground is easy to re-develop if the town really wants “high-density housing”, and the issue of boat sewage could be addressed with the pump-out/sani-dump facility. The list of pros goes on and on.

 

Yes it might cost a few bucks, but the land is just sitting there, year after year.
