To the Editor,
Re: Council reluctant to discuss Centre Stage upgrades, Dec. 6.
I support the presence of a community theatre in the south end.
That type of venue is vitally needed and would be nice if it could be in conjunction with a Granville Island-type project amongst a permanent market, studios, shops and more.
Nanaimo could do with a little forward-thinking vision like this. I remember lobbying for False Creek, Fairview Slopes re-development when it was a derelict area and look at it now.
We missed the boat on the Diana Krall Plaza which could have been a gem if it had opened to the harbour and was ringed by shops, coffee outlets, restaurants. etc.
