Bylaw No. 741, 2019
Park Land Exchange (Lot 23 West Ridge Way)
West Ridge community’s loss of their community park
The town claims that it proposes to swap a small sliver of park for a much larger parcel on a road boulevard and increase access to an adjacent property. The increased access will allow the Town to subdivide and sell that land. The Town did not disclose its intent!
What was not disclosed:
The West Ridge subdivision was developed in 2012 and future homeowners were influenced by a property map which highlighted three park areas that was presented by the exclusive realtor for the development. This parcel was one of the three “Parks” and now the Town intends to sell it.
So, this is not just about increasing parkland, it is about selling a cherished green spacewithout first consulting the local community.
This could happen to you in your neighborhood. Your cherished green spaces could be nothing more than town lots waiting to be sold.
Please sign the form to register your disapproval of this process.
The Electoral Response Form must be completed and delivered to the Town by 4pm on February 14th.
