Tonight there is a formal Notice of Rezoning Open House for the major project proposed for the corner of Clark Drive & First Avenue. It takes place at VCC from 5pm to 7:30pm this evening.
This has become a contentious issue in the neighbourhood. I fully support the project but others have very different views. A lot of the arguments on both sides have become ideological rather than fact-based, and that, unfortunately, leads to division.
My hope is that this development receives a fast approval and a fast commencement to the project, and that those in the neighbourhood who are opposed will learn to accept that this building is a positive benefit to the community as a whole.
