On Thursday morning, Mayor Larry Jangula took to social media to make a statement regarding the Maple Pool lawsuit settlement.

The following “Statement on Maple Pool” was posted to his Facebook page:

“The uncertainty around Maple Pool is now over. This was a priority for me as mayor and is one of the major reasons I ran for re-election last November. I am delighted that all concerned parties worked collaboratively over the past few months to resolve the outstanding issues.

“I want to thank City staff and councillors, Friends of Maple (sic), the Lin Family, and Dawn to Dawn: Action on Homelessness Society. Most importantly, I want to thank the residents at Maple Pool who worked so respectively and patiently with all the parties to bring forward this positive resolution. The residents have demonstrated the power of getting involved to make a positive difference in our community. My hope is that this resolution marks a new and positive beginning for all of the residents at Maple Pool.

“This process has reminded me that when we work together in a spirit of respect and collaboration we can resolve issues in a manner we can all be proud of.”

– Mayor Larry Jangula.

 

 

Maple Pool Campground owners, Jin and Dali Lin, had been embroiled in a five-year legal battle with the City of Courtenay over zoning regulations to do with their campground, which has been used as an affordable housing option for homeless and at-risk of homelessness Comox Valley residents. The lawsuit  was the most prominent issue of the 2014 municipal election.
