I wonder what could have prompted Barb Tribe to write such an extraordinary letter
(Comox council completely ignored residents’ concerns regarding Aspen Road development). She should know better. She bemoans the weeds on the Lorne Hotel property; how many weeds are growing on the Aspen Road property? Inventory, or should I say, lack of inventory, is a big part of the problem. Driven in part by an over-zealous regulatory regime, and the sanctimonious NIMBY ( not in my back yard) brigade, we have the second least affordable housing market on the planet! We can talk about the cost of renting a small apartment some other time. The Town of Comox got it right, this time. Well done.
It is churlish at the least to take a smug cheap shot at a local Realtor. He lives, works in, and supports the community. And he is entitled to his opinion.
