Letter to the Editor,
I respectfully, strongly, disagree with the Caped Cearnsader’s “Pool project can wait” column, in the Standard last week. I believe we urgently need a recreational centre complex to serve active residents, young and old, and act as a centre for our community. Badminton, indoor lawn bowling, basketball, swimming, pickleball, bocce, etc… We should not force our youth and residents to be active outside of Scugog.
Rather than proceed with a “pool at significant cost to the Township,” per the Caped Cearnsader, let’s try an innovative approach, already used in many other municipalities. Let’s define our rec-centre requirements and then let a citizen led group explore, in consultation with the township, the public/private partnerships that can make it happen sooner rather than later. All with minimizing the capital outlay of the municipality. Let’s be creative and think outside the box!
Ivo Finotti, Port Perry
