No amphitheatre

Resident opposed to open air music venue at Okanagan College

Joan Rowan’s excellent letter in  the March 9 edition expresses my sentiments exactly.

It seems as if every remaining tiny bit of natural habitat is rapidly disappearing around us.

Take a good look at Middleton Mountain and the western slope of Kalamalka Lake.

The noise pollution which would result is also completely unacceptable.

I live across the lake from the college. Despite there  being a small knoll between, we still hear the music during slowPitch and at times can hear bands practicing on the parade ground.   How awful for the people living even closer.

My suggestion is they invest money in renovating or replacing the bandshell in Polson Park for their music.   It is too small as it is but the location is completely appropriate.
