To the editor: Much misinformation exists about the level of support for a community center in St. James.
Opponents contend a majority of residents oppose the center. Little evidence supports this notion.
A history of the interest in a center will demonstrate the level of support.
First, interest in a community center was expressed in 2000 through a petition signed by half the residents expressing a wish for one.
The 2006 St. James Comprehensive Plan determined a “desire for a community center” was the second most important inside-the-gate issue.
