Big Shiny Projects (BSPs)

Big Shiny Projects (BSPs)

THE SHORT VERSION: Big Shiny Projects (BSPs) are expensive projects which get a lot of attention and are exciting to consider. Past examples include Revolution Place and The Eastlink Centre. A current example is the Bear Creek Outdoor Pool. BSPs have a place in our City, and future Councils should consider undertaking them. However, right now is not the time to start a BSP. Our very next Council needs to focus on two projects that are big but not shiny and exciting. Those are: 1) fixing the bypass (which will cost a lot of money) and 2) regional agreements (which will take a lot of time and attention- read more about them here). When it comes to recreation and community enhancement, our next Council should be looking at smaller projects, especially those that have volunteer support.
