Trail improvements and outstanding rezoning
I was pleased to walk along the re-graded and surfaced section of municipal trail along Miller Road from Snug Cove Village to Melmore today. Thank you to the municipality for doing this, it is a great and inexpensive improvement.
I also noted this week that the District of North Vancouver council approved an application for a four-townhouse development in Lynn Valley, which required, as part of the deal, that a portion of the land become natural parkland, and as well the developer gave the municipality $12,000 for trail upgrades.
I hope our staff and council follow this model in developing and approving the long-overdue rezonings for our community lands fronting on Miller Road. We have held the $2 million debt on an interest-only basis for these lands for almost 10 years, and the costs are mounting with no benefit to Bowen taxpayers.
