Council Vote

I want to let everyone know, council has listened to the people and taken the plans for ball fields out of Richmond Hill Park!

In 5-2 vote, Ball fields were removed from the plans and alternative locations for the fields will be pursued. This is great, not only will this great city forest be preserved, but more appropriate locations for ball fields will make accessibility for NALL families easier and safer.

I hope that the park can open soon so we can all enjoy the beauty this park holds.

The disc golf course will go through a public process to ensure input and environmental sensitivity, but I hope that it will open ASAP. With the ball fields removed from the plan more suitable land has been opened up allowing more variation in the course and ensure an environmentally responsible course.

Thank you all for you hard work and your support. I hope to see you all in the park as soon as it opens.

I see a bright future for this forest, as a place for education, recreation, and conservation

Thank you again

James Wood
