Some questions for council on Aldergrove pool

Residents wonder just what is happening on the poll and rec centre front, as there has been little communication.

Editor: I would like to address this to  the Township of Langley councillors:

The subject of the Aldergrove Pool and Recreation Centre has become very quiet, and has fallen out of the media.  Please provide Aldergrove residents with a formal update as to what progress is being made with our facility.

The last we heard, which was months ago, was that Township staff was to report back to council on the pool’s size, depth, budget and other issues.

Has staff reported back regarding their recommendations and, if not, what is the deadline for this?

In previous news articles, it stated there was a gross miscalculation and the costs of this facility would now be substantially higher.

Will this mean the recreation centre and pool will be completed in stages?  If so, will the pool be the first priority, given that Aldergrove already has a functioning ice arena, library and rec centre?

With the Township 2014 budget on the table, what is being allocated for this facility?

Please take time to answer these questions. We believe Aldergrove residents need to be updated and informed.  We feel communication needs to be key as we move forward with this facility.
