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]
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.
Here are details of a proposed development at Catamaran Pond that the Williams Lake Conservation Company believe may impact the quality of the Williams Lake watershed. The WLCC will be sending in our position on the proposed development before February 26 and we will post that when finalised.
What do a fishing pole, pop cans and vodka have in common? Weekend fishing excursion on Williams Lake? Marinade for your freshly caught, pan-fried trout? Unfortunately, it’s all garbage.
