Very unfair to people who bought expensive condos

Dear editor,

What happened to the original OCP for the Comox Marina development?

Dear editor,

What happened to the original OCP for the Comox Marina development?

It was held as a public meeting in I think Dusty’s Den years ago when Des Reid first applied for zoning for the marina infill.

It was passed that the hotel should be built on the hillside below the Town hall, that the east side of what became the Edgewater carpark was zoned for small marine-related business stores.

I don’t remember it coming to the public for a variance — but he was allowed to go ahead and build next door to the expensive waterfront condos. Marty Douglas was at this meeting, and will probably remember it better than I.

It all seems very unfair for those people who bought expensive condos in good faith.

Robert Lamb,

Comox Valley
