In light of your February 19th article Council protecting historic Macleod Trail we are thankful that council is continuing to protect this area.
However, we would like to point out that in 1997 this land was purchased for a sum of $160,000, of which $30,000 was donated by the town council with the remainder contributed by 145 corporate and individual donors.
It was then given back to the town for protected, permanent greenspace and a preserved heritage site.
At that time we were residents of Mountain Street West, whose residents contributed significantly to the preservation of this area.
We trust that the ruling made then will be upheld permanently.
