Are developers coming to Comox Valley ignorant or arrogant?

Dear editor,

I am not sure if developers coming into this valley are coming in a state of ignorance or arrogance.

Dear editor,

I am not sure if developers coming into this valley are coming in a state of ignorance or arrogance.

Have they not read the Official Community Plans? Do they not realize that people here in the Comox Valley actively participate in these plans; go to meetings, answer surveys, take an active interest in how their community develops?

Yet they waltz in here and demand that they be the exception to the rule and when they don’t get their way they pull out the bully boy tactics.

Kudos to the regional district for fighting  to protect the Official Community Plan that so many people worked on.

Maybe the developers are incapable of understanding the passions of the people of the Comox Valley, but here we want to preserve our natural heritage, not subdivide it.

Laurel Hodgins,

Comox Valley
