Lumby is the latest community to pull out of a referendum for a new active living center in Vernon.
The Village Council has informed Vernon that it has decided not to participate in the vote on October 15, 2022 and not to participate in a new recreation agreement.
“The board was interested in further discussion regarding post-referendum membership through a fee-for-service agreement; although there is no financial impact related to what it looks like, the discussion was quite short,” said Lumby chief administrative officer Tom Kadla.
Lumby’s decision follows that of Coldstream and Areas B and C, who recently informed Vernon that they too did not wish to be involved.
Vernon plans to build a new facility on the former Kin Race grounds, which could cost upwards of $121 million.
