Last night, 50+ persons attended an information session regarding the potential Moody Bay, 30 townhouse development project. Attendees included 4 GSLRA Executive members, seasonal and permanent waterfront residents, current Ward Councillors some standing for election in October, including the acclaimed Mayor Paul Kelly. The current land owner, Mr. Merv Smith and his planner Steve Fahner gave a brief presentation and a lengthy question and answer session with the attendees, followed.
The actual plans are still evolving. There were a lot of details “to be decided” later in the process. Your Executive has serious concerns about both the plans so far and about the “undecided” plans going forward.
Documents from the Meeting:
- the owner/developer has applied for a change in the zoning and that must be approved
- the Town is currently reviewing all submissions for the development and at the conclusion of its review then it will be presented to the Planning session of Council.
- at the moment the timing for all of this is earmarked for late August. Certain notices must be given to comply with procedure.
Your Executive will apprise you of all updates via email and the website. We encourage you to check both regularly. It is paramount that the GSLRA has current email address of all of our residents to fully inform and engage them in this issue! Send all your email addresses of all your household to ensure everyone is informed!
And for heavens sake, sign up to vote. Every vote in the October election will matter. Your Executive will be involved in interviewing all candidates to determine how their views align with those of our membership. You can sign up by calling into the Town. See Election item below.
