Keep Caretakers in Regional Parks

This petition had 746 supporters

We support the preservation of on-site resident caretakers in the Central Okanagan regional parks. We have clean, safe, and beautiful regional parks; we believe this is largely due to the 24/7 oversight and monitoring of live-in contractors. We support resident caretakers at the four parks who are slated to lose their on-site security contractors: Woodhaven Nature Conservancy, Kopje Regional Park, Reiswig Regional Park and Bertram Creek Regional Park.  As neighbours and park users, we know that on-site caretakers help keep crime down and help keep the parks safe. We also believe that there is invaluable cultural value in having long-term, living relationships at the heart of our parks. There is a wide gap between what the RDCO thinks the security contractors provide and what the community thinks they provide. We request that the RDCO reconsider its decision to remove on-site resident contractors.
