Pitch for move from soccer fields trips up developers in Chelsea, Quebec

The Editor,

Is it not by now apparent that the Chelsea, Quebec community centre project needs to move from the substandard land by the soccer fields? Instead moving over to the Old Chelsea Village side of the A5 so that it can benefit from a much smaller, affordable and long-planned sewer project for the small group of dwellings that require a sewer in the village? Would it not find a home in the recently approved Hendricks Farm project?

I know this would be a blow to those developers who would have Chelsea taxpayers foot the bill for the infrastructure required to make their land more valuable, but I’m guessing most of us could probably live with that.
