It is with great sadness that I read the notice at Staysail RV park, city beach to me, about the permanent closure of the RV park.
This park has been a mainstay for me and my family for 30 years while vacationing in a choice location not too far from home, which is Surrey, British Columbia.
Unfortunately for politicians and taxpayers, they don’t understand that by destroying a park worth more than $1 million and paying for so-called improvements to the park that the loss of more than $1 million of assets plus a loss of future revenue and the cost of improvements is coming out of the taxpayers’ pockets.
This does not include the loss of revenue to the city businesses — gas pumps, restaurants, Walmart, grocery stores, thrift stores, etc — that I spent more than $100 per day every day that I was there, about 40 days per year. Multiply this by the many other RV park patrons year round and the losses are phenomenal. Thanks for your past patronage.
