Semiahmoo First Nation is expected to make a statement about future plans for Semiahmoo Park this week.

Band councillor Joanne Charles told Peace Arch News that a news release could be expected Wednesday.

Since the Semiahmoo First Nation property was fenced in December, rumours have multiplied that future development was as much a reason as safety issues due to a sinkhole on the land, or disrespect shown by dog walkers.

Charles declined to discuss the rumours in advance of the planned release.

“We’ve heard the rumour mill, too, and I can tell you those rumours are coming from residents, not the Semiahmoo First Nation,” she said.
