Dear Nolan Crouse and City of St. Albert Council:

Have you actually looked at your own web site – Photo Features Examples of this bike park eyesore? If not, you may want to go to:

This proposal of a dirty, ugly, cancer sore in the middle of St. Albert's Historical Centre, Mission Hill (Seven Hills) is a disgrace! As you are all aware, Mission Hill is the centre of the FIRST community in Alberta, St. Albert. It is surrounded by the CPR historic Mission Bells, The Catholic St. Albert Cathedral, The FIRST Church in Alberta, Father Lacombe Chapel Church, The Little White School House, Founders Walk Promenade, and the Small Prairie Church. Do you want visitors to be greeted to the "Botanical City of St. Albert” with this unsightly visual cancer?

I am not opposed to the building of a Dirt Bike Skills Park, but please pick an appropriate place! Try near the BMX park, or next to Servus Place or in the northeast corner, or at the gravel pit in the northwest corner. I hear that in Kingswood there is a piece of undeveloped land that a school cannot be built upon. There is a site for you.

Please rethink this project.

Liz Samson, St. Albert
