to address several issues raised during this campaign, such as human waste on trials, vanlife, and increased communication by the Council and The District of Squamish, I promise to ask staff to add a page to the District website to communicate the location of public washrooms, their hours, what facilities they have, and to increase the number of men’s washrooms with change tables.
People shouldn’t have to use sites like Public Toilet Near Me to find a public washroom in Squamish. And men shouldn’t have to go to several or#squatforchange to find a place to change their infants. Its great to have new washrooms at Trailheads. Now we need to let people know about them.
This is an easy way to increase communication and livability for Squamish.
Some might think these promises are small compared to the larger issues facing Squamish. I agree, however this is the kind of work from council that affects people’s quality of day-to-day life and takes up the majority of council time – and it’s a promise we can keep.
We can always work on improving communication; this is something that I noticed and that I promise to continue doing.
