I was very brave yesterday and spoke at a public meeting (reading from a piece of paper, that is...) about a development application of 91 one-acre lots 5 kms outside the urban boundary in Maple Ridge, serviced by city water. We can't afford to subsidize these kinds of developments, and it's also not exactly an exemplary model for a sustainable community. Read my blog post here.
This development will be back on the agenda for the Council meeting on Tuesday, May 28, 7 pm. Please send your comments to firstname.lastname@example.org or have your say at the meeting.
