Save Linley Valley petitions available at businesses

Support continues to build for a group attempting to save a portion of Linley Valley from development.

Team Save Linley Valley West is circulating a petition throughout the city in hopes of creating public awareness of the more than 80 hectares of wetland, woodland and trails between Rutherford Road and Linley Valley (Cottle Lake) Park.

Petitions can be signed at Nanaimo businesses including: Romper Room Indoor Climbing Centre on Boban Drive; The Backyard Wild Bird and Nature Store on Metral Drive; True Blue Pet Foods, Rock City Plaza; Nanaimo’s Health Shop, Country Club Centre, Valhalla Pure Outfitters, Longwood Station; and Northridge Fitness Club, North Ridge Village.

The team is also hosting an information table Oct. 7-9 at Country Club Centre.

For more information, please e-mail Joanne Jonas at driftwoodart2003@yahoo.ca.
