Tonight’s city council fight card features: Property Tax Rate Increases, Drinking Water Conservation Plan Bylaw and two Public Hearings. First up addressing bylaws prohibiting Mary Jane non-medicinal Cannabis Production via BCLDB city sales then forwarded to a Public Hearing.
The second Public Hearing entertains the density onslaught at 2601 where the developer Pezzente Holdings and GBL Architects present their case for wanting to ROB a long withstanding green space, expand their development over a lane thus hindering all emergency vehicle accessibility. While in the same breath tooting i.e. farting: REDUCED MID RENTAL RATES BASED ON 2016 NUMBERS against when finished in late 2019 early 2020 the guaranteed much higher rental rate being closer to OVER 2K A MONTH! #cnvSOL
Meanwhile just up the street DNVC Council will be proposing to induct a very “one-sided” city council reunification survey between our two cities. The logistics make since from their perspective with little left in their financial reserve tank, and having green stamped large areas from potential development. So who do you bust for future density growth and financial stability – why of course North Vancouver City! #UpYours!
I am amused by the likes of District councillor Bassam in the NS Rag preaching the advantages in the reunification between the two cities. Does this mean he and his District are willing to pay for half of the proposed new $160+ million Harry Jerome Centre – think not. Instead they would prefer to deflect such issues and prop city service duplication’s as why we should be merging kin. Which of course has little bearing on some of the real reasons like: little density left at the District Inn, suspect financial reserves and a seemingly lack of identity without a business and social waterfront gathering centre OR a $140 million grab-bag their city council would dearly love to gorge. #GetStuffed
