Earlier this week at the Vancouver Park Board Committee meeting two contentious Kits Beach topics were settled.
1) The Board approved an expansion of the Boathouse Restaurant to include a 56 seat outdoor roof patio located to the west of the restaurant. Subject to the approval of City Planning for the expansion, a modification will be made to the restaurant lease.
2) The Board approved a change to the current policy regarding the operation of the basketball courts at Kitsilano Beach Park to allow for year round use at this sports destination.
Over the years both of these issues have garnered plenty of debate. So we have to ask: Did the Park Board Commissioners make the right decision on the roof patio and basketball court?
