New Westminster – The results of the Queens Park Resident’s Association (QPRA) Urban Academy expansion proposal poll are in. Nearly two-thirds of respondents voted against the expansion proposal.
Between February 15th and March 16th the Queens Park Residents’ Association ran a poll on their website asking residents of the neighbourhood whether or not they were in favour or opposed to the Urban Academy proposed expansion. “We are very pleased with the number of respondents to the poll; we never expected over 350 residents to respond,” said Berril Perks, the QPRA President. “At the end of the day, 65 per cent of respondents do not support the expansion, while 32 per cent do”, continued Mr. Perks. Three (3) percent indicated a neutral position.
We would like to thank all the residents who took the time to complete the poll and those who helped spread the word.
The Queens Park Residents’ Association hosts regular meetings to discuss issues that matter to residents of the neighbourhood and New Westminster as a whole. If you live in Queens Park you are already a member. Visit our website for more information.
