Is Harrison moving backward?

Are we going to be assaulted with the smoke and mess from cooking on our wonderful beach?

This letter is referring to some of the new bylaws that were adopted by the Village of Harrison Hot Springs. Animal control bylaw #1039 took away the only dog off  leash area. Designated off leash areas are everywhere now. Agassiz just recently put in a new off leash area for dogs. Now Harrison takes away the only one we had.

Bylaw #1040 allowing BBQ on the beach. Are we going to be assaulted with the smoke and mess from cooking on our wonderful beach? Who now wants to sit on the beach and enjoy the view with smoke bellowing from the bbqs?

Who is going to patrol the beach every day to make sure there are no hibachis , briquettes or charcoal bbqs? Are we hiring another officer to make sure this doesn’t happen? Who will pay to clean up the beach area after these wonderful bbqs are over. We already have bbqs at Green Point Park. Why not leave it at that?

I think that at least these two bylaws should be looked at again.

I thought Harrison had no pay parking on the beach? My 93 year old dad was visiting here and we parked in the handicapped space by Rendall Park. We were told it would cost us $7 to park there. That sounds like pay parking to me.

Is Harrison Hot Springs going backward in time? Get with the times, Harrison. I hope others think the same way and will also speak up.

Mrs. Sandra Denisuk
