Letter: Could Whistler Racket Club move to Spruce Grove?

'The valuable space in the village for housing has priority...'

Would Spruce Grove make a good location for a new tennis and pickle ball facility in Whistler?

The obvious choice for a new location for the Whistler Racket Club is at Spruce Grove next to the netball courts.

[As the Resort Municipality of Whistler rezones the Northlands], the valuable space in the village for housing has priority over a sport that can relocate easily.

Just the space above the courts is another place seniors, or the low-income families that run this town, could live.

I sympathize with the Whistler Racket Club. I love going there, and some of my best meals have been over fireworks in the village—find another venue to let the space you want for your sport be occupied by hard-working locals for generations.
