LETTER: Communicate your opposition to Hatzic Bench development

Just because a developer wants to build on a specific piece of land doesn`t mean that he is owed that right

News that (developers) Jason Tiegin and Gary Toor have set their sights on bringing a high density development to the Hatzic Bench hasn`t been received exactly with open arms by homeowners who will be adversely effected by it.

Just because a developer wants to build on a specific piece of land doesn`t mean that he is owed that right. Not by the people already near it or by our mayor and council.

This particular project can only be stopped by a loud outcry against it by residents of the Hatzic Bench who do not want a high density development on the old Ferncliff property.

What`s proposed has already been done around Mission and has turned entire neighbourhoods into glorified parking lots on any given Sunday afternoon.

I`m appealing directly to residents of The Hatzic Bench to email the mayor and council members directly with your opposition to seeing a high-density elephant being dumped in the middle of a great place to live. It`s only your voice that can make a difference before the rubber stamping starts happening and by then it will be too late.

Robert T. Rock
