City’s cuts to Centre shortsighted

A response to the December 3 article regarding reducing the size of the Riverfront Centre.

In regards to the article, “Riverfront Centre size shrunk to fit budget” (Trail Times, Dec. 3, 2015), I am disappointed with this decision because I feel it is shortsighted.

If, as the current Trail Council has indicated, they hope for nearby development of condominiums/apartments would not a coffee shop and multi-purpose space be advantageous to those living in the area?

Is there an actual figure for the savings of the 2,000 square foot reduction in size? At some future date what would the projected cost to add the coffee shop and multi-purpose space?

Perhaps with further consideration the Trail City Council will review their decision and give us the original planned library/museum project as a positive change for our area.
