Nelson is part of our community. School greenspace is public space. Reopen the field at Lord Nelson Elementary immediately.
Over a century ago, public space in Grandview Woodland was granted into the stewardship of the VSB with the understanding that it would be a shared community asset for use by the school community as needed and otherwise available to the broader community, including the students, outside of school hours.
Disturbingly, the greenspace at Lord Nelson was recently fenced and then locked off, without any consultation of the school community or broader community. This lack of consultation is disrespectful and unacceptable.
GWAC is asking that all locks on this space be immediately removed with the space left accessible to the public outside of school hours, pending further consultation on the issue.
