A rewarding and significant part of our lives
Letter to the Editor
Remembering where we come from is truly a rewarding and significant part of our lives – not only in a personal level but also in the life of our community.
In Cranbrook our physical roots can be seen in several areas: Slaterville, Wattsville, and the general area 1st to 18th Avenue.
These are the original subdivisions of the city and in recent years these older sections of our community have been undergoing a steady revitalization.
Several years ago the Baker Hill Heritage Association was formed. This group was responsible for convincing the city that in the Baker Hill area any development or redevelopment must reflect the historical values of the area. This has worked so well that in the other historical areas of the city such as Slaterville, community groups have been established. In fact in the entire older parts of the city efforts to maintain or upgrade properties are very evident. I commend these fine citizens of our community for their very obvious pride in their homes and city.
