Comox resident doesn’t share council’s vision

Dear editor,

I strongly object to this development as outlined with commercial units below and 89 residential rental units.

1. What a traffic nightmare on Anderton. Each of the 89 residents would need parking and access to Anderton.  That’s hundreds of cars (two per unit, out in a.m. and home in p.m.) Then add the hundreds who will visit the commercial properties below.

2. Add all the total number of  units presently on Balmoral Avenue from the golf course to the end of Balmoral.  I bet it doesn’t total 89.

3. Why would the Official Community Plan give a gigantic “workaround” to a cookie cutter development which will destroy the nearby neighbourhoods? Please explain the reasons.

Our Comox council has allowed 10 lots on Torrence when only seven were permitted in the plan, despite a petition from nearby homeowners who objected to the increased density. The signage revealed that each lot was priced at $160,000. Do the math.

The destruction of the Church Street corridor by an empty building now in foreclosure made Comox by the Sea into Comox Fiddle Dee Dee.

Council’s vision of Comox is not my vision.  Respect our Community Plan.

Time for an election.
