Wayland Sports Richmond
Dear Wayland Families:
Last week Wayland Sports Ltd. received a letter from the City of Richmond stating that a 36 bed homeless shelter would be re-located right next door to our Children’s sport centre. While we support the city’s efforts to create more beds and supports for the homeless (currently the homeless shelter that they will be re-locating only has 10 beds), we are concerned that the location they have picked is not a good fit, given the population that our business serves.
Our business neighbours also agree that the homeless shelter is not a good fit for us, and have written the attached letter and petition to be presented to the City of Richmond.
There will be an information meeting this Thursday September 21st regarding this project. Wayland Sports and our business neighbours will be in attendance. We urge all concerned and affected to attend this information meeting.
Date: Thursday September 21st 2017
Time: 3:00 pm – 7:00 pm
Location: Richmond Public Library
11688 Steveston Highway, Richmond BC
We thank you for your continued support of our organization, and hope you will join us on Thursday evening to voice any concerns you may have. If you have any questions regarding this matter, please don’t hesitate to contact our office.
