Lake Cowichan’s P-1 zoned land should remain zoned as such

Who are the Lake Cowichan seniors society Mr. Kelly [J.H. Boyd property owner] mentions giving two acres of Boyd school property to?

Editor: Who are the Lake Cowichan seniors society Mr. Kelly [J.H. Boyd property owner] mentions giving two acres of Boyd school property to?

I do not know of any society of this name. I do know Mr. Kelly has made two offers to the Founders Independent Living Society, but has withdrawn both offers.

He waved the condition of rezoning before purchase and if he does not plan to build a suitable P-1 allowable structure on the parcel of land, why did he buy it?

To keep coming back with plan after plan and whining that he is being treated unfairly and slinging mud at anyone that does not agree with the property being taken out of P-1 zoning is ridiculous, tiresome and offensive to think he can bully the town council and concerned citizens.

This is a common strategy used by developers when they don’t get their way.

The citizens at public meetings on many occasions made it very clear; Use P-1 land for allowable P-1 uses.

This property, as well as all P-1 zoned land, should be excluded from this development zone, just like Palsson school was. Good thing we have the Lake Cowichan Ratepayers’ Association to stand up for the citizens when crap like this comes down the pipe again and again.

I will be attending the August 18 Advisory Planning Commission meeting with a request that our property at 20 South Shore Road (Evergreen Place) be removed from this new development area.

Founders Independent Living Society president
