Nelson Commons not heritage enough

The Nelson Commons will be an amazing addition to the downtown core.

I have to wonder though, what happened to the heritage theme of our city? Why are we seeing an ultra-modern development across from the Civic Theatre, the dental office in the old church, Gerick Cycle and the New Grand? All these business, and more have spent thousands to maintain the heritage look downtown.

If not heritage, then why not a timber frame structure with rock and stone like we see in Rossland at the ski hill, using our own local timber framers and complimenting our mountain-town image?
