Letter: Revised Local Area Plan for Cadboro Bay

To Saanich Planning Department and city council members. I am a resident of Cadboro Bay who attended the Revised Cadboro Bay Local Plan update so called workshop at the Goward house on June 11, 2022.

Letter: Revised Saanich Cadboro Bay Local Area Plan

Letter sent to Saanich Mayor & Council: I attended the Revised Saanich Cadboro Bay Local Area Plan workshop on June 11.

Letter: on Draft Cadboro Bay LAP

As a local resident, I also attended the Cadboro Bay Local Area Plan (LAP) workshop on June 11 at Goward House.

Letter: June 11 Saanich workshop

Dear Neighbours, Here’s our takeaways from yesterday's “Saanich" workshop: Notice, I did not call it a "Cadboro Bay" workshop because Sylvia (we gather a head Saanich planner) stated that survey opinions on density and height of buildings would be “democratically” accepted from persons living outside of Cadboro Bay. We don’t think she was asked if… Continue reading Letter: June 11 Saanich workshop

Letter: Retain Cadboro Bay’s Charm

I have lived in Cadboro Bay almost all my life (that's 63 years). I went to Frank Hobbs , Arbutus and Mt. Doug schools. I owned a business in the Village for ~30 years. I have seen some changes here. They have been soft changes and not hard to accept. The most dramatic was the… Continue reading Letter: Retain Cadboro Bay’s Charm
