The OCP affects everyone in the district

Group planning to send strong message to council about land use

Concerned residents, property owners and business owners request D.O.K. Mayor and Council advise Urban Systems and Mr. Black to review Future Land Options for Potential Areas of Developers Interest, specifically West Cameron Rd. (Future Industrial?).

We also request D.O.K. and Urban Systems hold a special transportation corridor meeting to address four main key issues raised at previous work shops.

1.    Preservation of farmland

2.    Drainage

3.    Traffic

4.    Environmental concerns

The transportation corridor is the main and most expensive component of any Official Community Plan. It houses storm, sanitary, gas, electric, paths (walking and cycling) and accesses to recreational facilities.

Careful planning of its location and how it will be funded are of the up most importance.

This corridor will service all farms, residential, commercial, industrial and recreational development in the District of Kent.

A District Of Kent Economic Action Plan must be developed to clarify what services will be provided, to whom, at what cost and how they will be funded, both at present and for the next twenty seven years. These answers can only come from residents, property owners and business owners.

The decisions made at our final O.C.P. will affect all individuals personally. The implementation of this plan may well affect everyone’s immediate neighbourhood/enviroment. So the attendance and participation of everybody at the special transportation corridor meeting is strongly suggested.

Please attend the August 19/2013 council meeting at 7:00 pm and send a strong message to the Mayor, Council and staff of both our request.
