Shelter should not be equated as a home

Dear editor,
I am disappointed that Mayor Greg Phelps and staff at city hall have not bent over backwards to rezone or establish some means of assisting Maple Pool Campground.

Dear editor,I am disappointed that Mayor Greg Phelps and staff at city hall have not bent over backwards to rezone or establish some means of assisting Maple Pool Campground.Those residents are peaceably living within their means.A plan to develop more, not less of this type of habitation should be in the works.The mayor and council could not agree on a homeless shelter location.If they chose to support this type of living arrangement managed by private citizens, the need for a further homeless shelter at the cost to taxpayers would be eliminated.Support the Salvation Army in their endeavour to aid the homeless with temporary sheltering.Most people just want a home they can afford. A shelter should not be equated as a home.I suggest the elected council and the staff at city hall and the owners rename it Maple Pool Trailer Court.Make it a model for further development to assist the poorest of Courtenay’s population.  An election is coming up and this will be one of the main topics.Lynn Kelly,Comox Valley
