LET’S START this week’s blog with a bold statement. Something along the lines of, ‘the performing arts centre (PAC) does not belong, nor is it needed in the downtown core of Kamloops’. In fact, let’s add to that by suggesting, ‘it is especially not suitable for the corner of 4th and Seymour’.
I mean seriously, 4th and Seymour? We’ve got a brand new parking lot there and who in their right mind would want to tear up that pristine field of awe inspiring asphalt, with all those beautiful and matching lines for some centre for the performing arts.
As for alternative locations, Stewart Wood is now committed to other uses as is the once proposed site beside the Hotel 540. So what’s a City to do?
