Neepawa council election topic - Skate Park?

By Ken Waddell

As the election approaches, we will try to feature some potential election issues. Roads have been mentioned to us. The Neepawa cemetery perpetual care issue was well covered in the Neepawa Banner & Press recently. At that time a comparison was drawn between spending money in a cemetery versus youth and recreation.

Here is a picture comparison that may be worth looking over. On the left is the beautiful skate park at Rivers, Manitoba. On the right is the skate park at Neepawa, or what little is left of it.

Rivers population is just under 1,200 people. Neepawa’s population is just over 4,600.

Should Neepawa be able to match Rivers efforts? Rivers park is lovely and useful and the one at Neepawa nearly demolished and has been that way for years. All that remains of Neepawa’s park is a faded sign and broken fence that looks unsafe. Could this be a council election issue? It depends if enough people care. Neepawa has an unsightly property bylaw but to date it hasn’t been applied to this piece of town property.

Thumbs up, thumbs down - Thumbs up to RM of Rosedale

Thumbs up to the R.M. of Rosedale for maintaining “Big Valley” for a place for everyone to enjoy. A special thanks for the new fire pots. Now let everyone respect the effort R.M. of Rosedale does to keep Big Valley a very special place. Thanks.
