If the Town is going to be open to major change (which is likely and probably the purpose of the exercise), then we absolutely HAVE to call for a full OCP review. If we let this slide by, we might as well fold up our tents and slink away - we've lost.
The next step in this exercise is up to Council and we know where that decision is going, so what is the point in registering our resistance? Once it's passed by Council, it's done, the die is cast, we're sprawling to accommodate growth. And there's no point in saying we can attract more young families - we know perfectly well the developers only want to build for upscale seniors.
QB is doomed as a sustainable, diverse, compact community (with an elementary school - kids - as its centre). We used to be the envy of all who saw us as a well-designed community. How sad to see it disappearing because of one bad decision.
