Historic home worth saving

Congratulations to the Salmon Arm Council on the purchase of the property next to the recreation centre

Congratulations to the Salmon Arm Council on the purchase of the property next to the recreation centre which comes complete with a magnificent heritage home.

What a marvellous opportunity for Salmon Arm to preserve one of its few heritage properties left standing.

Its re-location and restoration  could be included in the Canada 150 anniversary projects for our city, providing future generations with an insight into our history.

You must surely have heard that last week an old house in downtown Vancouver was moved with great care and ingenuity to a new location, to be restored in the future.

It can be done, although expensive, (possible funding from province or Ottawa?)

It would be a lasting monument to our city and council of 2016-17 that we had the forethought to see what a benefit this would be to our town.

All of Salmon Arm should rally around this initiative like we did for the new fountain, the arena and the CT scanner.

Action is needed now, before this building is destroyed forever.

Preserve this asset please.
