Rotary Centennial Pond closed for skating season

City staff has closed the ice rink at Discovery Landing in Spencer Smith Park for the remainder of the season. The unseasonably mild temperatures have made it difficult to maintain proper ice conditions. Staff will now begin preparations to transform the rink back to a reflective pond.

I was inspired to seek public office because I believe, like so many of you, “I can do something about that” on the issues we face. As councilor, my role is to take a stand on what’s best for residents and go to bat for it. Pushback is inevitable from those who don’t have the community’s interests at heart. I will stand with you and for you, to achieve the best interests of our city, without caving to unacceptable compromise in the name of consensus.
