I’m voting no for a few reasons. First, I would like to say I have 12 grand kids and live on a fixed income also. As for the great story from a woman who outlived two husbands and calling people cheap is the kind of thinking of the well off. Yes two husbands’ pensions to live on would be nice. I am not CHEAP, but can’t afford a 100 per cent rise in our property tax. I’m sure a lot of other people are in the same boat with either a fixed or low income and maybe a big mortgage. I think 3344 properties trying to build a pool are somewhat ridiculous. It’s like everyone in town trying to buy a million dollar home on a pension with nothing down and hoping for a government grant. The pro-pool people must be thinking like Campbell or the Fat Cat Ferries? Almost 700 million was spent on a roof on B.C. Place where people play a game and make tons of money playing a game and our children or grand kids need a new hospital, but we need to donate money to build a Children’s Hospital. Where are our priorities?
Princeton need’s a functioning hospital not a 17,000 square foot building to swim in with a hot tub. With everything from urine to fecal matter in the pool water and cancer causing chlorine fumes in the air, this isn’t a healthy for anyone. I am new here to Princeton and was drawn here by not a pool, but the small town feel with friendly people and not the big cities ideas. What’s next pay parking on the streets and in the hospital parking lot extra gas tax to pay for transit? There is a lot of talk how a pool would attract professional people, namely doctors. Professional people can build their own pool or buy their own hot tub. Fixing up or building a new smaller pool that fits Princeton population would be a lot more intelligent than spending nine million on a pool that you can’t even dive into.
