“A tipping point has been reached. Any further development would likely push the lake past its capacity to survive as a lake.”
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]
Proposed development in the Williams Lake watershed: “There is a definite sign of change in Spryfield. The enormous, blue HRM sign, on the small vacant lot at 48 – 50 Old Sambro Road, is evidence of change that may happen in your Spryfield neighbourhood. Read the sign. Provide your input. Make change happen your way.”
The Williams Lake Conservation Conservation Company (WLCC) is asking for your support. A proposed zoning change in the area of Catamaran Ponds, Spryfield, is under consideration by the Halifax Regional Municipality (HRM). On behalf of Halifax residents who enjoy these lakes, the WLCC is raising the issue of how development next to the ponds will degrade water quality and disrupt water flow to the lakes.
