From all of us at the Mill Bay Community League, Thank-you so much for taking the time to fill in our survey! We now have a picture of what the members of our Mill Bay community want and need.
Here is a summary of the results:
What facilities would you like to have access to? (Listed as rated by respondents)
Other, Sidewalks, Outdoor fitness equipment, Streetlights, Bandstand, Crosswalks, Track
What community events would you attend? (Listed as rated by respondents)
Music/Cultural events, Movie nights, General meetings on current local issues, Free Children’s programs, Community scavenger hunt.
So, what is that mysterious “other” category in the first question? A pool! The topic of having a pool in the south end of the valley was brought up again and again. The history of aquatic centres in the valley is complicated. A referendum was defeated in 2009 to expand the Kerry Park Community Centre and add a pool.
Look forward to information sessions in the upcoming year hosted by the Mill Bay Community League attended by our area director Blaise Salmon addressing the feasibility and implications of each of these issues. We hope to see you there!
