Missed the public meeting on the Beachway Master Plan? Here’s the link to the presentation showing the proposed sections and development of the plan.
No timeline or budget for completion has been set. The plans include removal of all the privately-owned homes in the beach. Several have recently been sold to the Region, however many residents have said they intend to remain in their own homes and not sell to the Region. This is a very controversial issue, and decision, that is affecting this neighbourhood to the point that the Region is becoming almost the only buyer. I support the retention of this historic neighbourhood along the beach, which has been here for over 100 years. This community does not impede public access to the shoreline, and enhances the beach area. I support improvements to the park along the path, parking and shoreline, on land already in public hands, and do not support buying private properties to remove this neighbourhood for further park expansion.
