Seniors-centric space a priority for District of Squamish - Q & A

The District wishes to clarify questions and misperceptions raised surrounding the provision of seniors-centric space in Squamish, and the proposal to move this space to the new Westwinds seniors apartment building.

“I am disheartened by some of the comments we have seen on social media regarding this decision currently in front of Council,” says District of Squamish Mayor Karen Elliott. “Council and staff have great respect for every senior in our community and we also recognize that there is a diversity of perspectives within our seniors population. We are working hard to provide programming and space to meet their needs, while trying to balance the fiscal and capacity realities we face. I ask the community to learn more about the opportunity and why it is being discussed, and envision how this could be a really positive move overall. We are committed to working with seniors to make this space feel their own and meet their needs long term.”
