South-Ender concerned - Nadine Bradley

I would like to inform the citizens Sudbury about the proposed residential development in Lo-Ellen Park and the transfer, sale and/or exchange of 4.6 acres of designated parkland.

I would like to inform the citizens Sudbury about the proposed residential development in Lo-Ellen Park and the transfer, sale and/or exchange of 4.6 acres of designated parkland. This parkland is being used as leverage and could be lost to this development. This property was zoned "P" (public park), and has been so since 1964 as per an affidavit under the Land Transfer Tax Act, which states that it was "conveyance of lands for public purposes."

The current ratio of city parkland to population in the South End only has 0.57 hectares of parks to 1,000 residents, while the standard is three hectares to 1,000.

The City of Greater Sudbury's parks, open space and leisure master plan states, "parks and open spaces bring beauty to an area while giving people satisfaction and improve their quality of life."

If Greater Sudbury is recognized as a leader in the "green movement," we must strive to maintain and not dispose of our parklands in order to appease developers/development.

If this can happen in my neighbourhood, it can happen in yours!

Nadine Bradley
Greater Sudbury
