Too Little, Too Late, Too Bad!!! No public consultations for new rec complex!!!
Submitted By tonyh on Thursday, April 16, 2015
Your action needed today!!!  After what feels like zero consultation with anyone except Conestoga College, Cambridge City Council is set to decide on the location of the new sports and rec complex plus a sweet partnership deal for Conestoga College. 

This BIG decision is being made after little consultation with the public and key stakeholders, with very little warning and after providing very little information. 

Hespeler Minor Hockey believes that consultation with user groups and the public should be made through every stage of the process. We are concerned that key decisions such as size, uses, location and partnerships seem to have already been made. 


Please contact your Councillors and Mayor if you think we deserve a voice.


Ward 2 Councillor Mike Devine email ([email protected]) - Tel: (519)740-4517 Ext 4731

Mayor Doug Craig - email ([email protected]) - Tel: (519)740-4517 ext 4215

Regional Councillor Karl Kiefer - email ([email protected]) - Tel: (519)575-4400
