Eric Dahli, Chair of the Cadboro Bay Residents Association, reports:
At a meeting last night (Monday), by a vote of 6 to 3, Saanich councillors voted for the Local Area Plans of Cordova Bay and Cadboro Bay be completed in the coming year.
In addition to Council, 19 members of the public spoke on this agenda item.
The council had recently decided to “pause” completion of all Local Area Plans for between 20 to 24 months, to free up resources to be applied to Saanich broader housing needs. The decision to rescind this decision in relation to Cordova Bay and Cadboro Bay is in response to pressure and protests from those two associations and their residents.
