An open letter from Michele Raymond to HRM Planner Jennifer Chapman in opposition to proposed rezoning of property adjacent to Catamaran Ponds, a critical part of the Williams Lake and Colpitt Lake watershed
Spryfield residents and neighbourhoods surrounding Catamaran Ponds are being asked to provide HRM with their input about the proposed 13-unit, 4-storey apartment complex to be built on the small lot next to the ponds. DEADLINE FRI. 26 FEB 2021. [Aerial: Darren Talbot]
The small lot at 48-50 Old Sambro Road is an important wildlife corridor. The vacant lot is a gateway for animals to move safely from Long Lake to Governors Brook to McIntosh Run and through to the Purcell’s Cove backlands. A 3-story, 13 unit apartment building would block this corridor. [Wildlife cross busy intersection to get to 48-50 Old Sambro Road. Photo: Ronnie Boutilier]
UPDATE: The HRM Staff Report on re-zoning of 48-50 Old Sambro Road has been published. The WLCC is very concerned that our issues have not be properly addressed in the Report. We are preparing a draft response to be filed with the Clerks office no later than Monday as the matter proceeds to Halifax and West Community Council this Tuesday at 6 pm.
