To the editor:
The City of Thunder Bay should look into acquiring the North American Lumber property for additional parking for the Fort William Gardens.
A couple of years ago city taxpayers shelled out a lot of money to consultant Conrad Boychuk with regard to repurposing the Fort William Gardens in the event a new facility was built.
It would appear the Fort William Gardens in one form or another will be here for a long time. Many patrons of this facility have expressed concern about acquiring more parking. The Fort William Curling Club would also benefit if more parking was acquired. The curling club that is attached to the Fort William Gardens has over 30 years left on their lease with the City of Thunder Bay.
The city might also entertain acquiring or leasing a portion of the Mckellar Park School ground as this too would be a good acquisition.
