Let’s save our Farmers Market. Remind the Mayor and White Rock City Council that the Farmer’s Market is part of White Rock’s Unique Character and it supports local businesses. It is also part of Bosa’s commitment to our community.
In 2007, the Bosa Towers were granted Bonus Height approval on condition that they provide space to benefit the community as a “social and recreational Hub” on site. But now the Mayor and Council has pushed back the Farmer’s Market set up time, and want to push the Farmer’s Market out entirely, eliminating some of that community benefit that was promised in return for the tower’s added height.
The concerns of thousands of residents were ignored when the towers were built, but one complaint from a Bosa resident and the Farmer’s Market is now being pushed out. Is this the “Respect for the Public” that Mayor Baldwin wrote about during his 2014 election campaign? Is this what he meant when he said that he believed in “Maintaining White Rock’s Unique Character”?
Sounds like a politician promising one thing, then doing the opposite.
Actions speak louder than political promises!
