Dear City Council Members,
I am writing in support of, and asking you to vote for, the upcoming approval of the Lewis Farms Recreation Centre in West Edmonton. As a resident of West Edmonton, I have strongly supported the upcoming construction of the Lewis Farms Recreation Centre since its initial announcement in 2015. I feel that this facility is a very much needed addition to our area, and will prove to meet several needs of countless groups and provide another advantage to living in West Edmonton.
West Edmonton is one of the few areas of the city that does not have a city-funded recreation facility within 5km. The closest facilities are either closed for renovation, or well over capacity. That leaves many West End residents not able to access programming or attend city-funded facilities, or traveling far distances, including to other cities like Spruce Grove and St. Albert. It’s time for West Edmonton to have their own Recreation Centre, not only to benefit those who live here, but to help relieve the burden of overcrowding from other facilities in the city.
In addition, this facility will not only provide recreation and associated programming, but will give West Edmonton residents access to a much needed library, meeting spaces, and a high school completion centre. The three Lewis Farms designated High Schools do not have completion programs; the closest completion centre is in Glennwood, over 7km away.
<<<Add your comments here! Why is the Lewis Farms Rec Centre needed in West Edmonton? What benefits will it provide for you and your family? What aspect of it are you most looking forward to? How will the Rec Centre will benefit you and your family on a personal level - and how will the delay in its being built affect you and your family?>>>
Thank you for your time and consideration to this important matter.
