So the gravel sand pit application is waiting for more information and the sewage application was deficient and proponent must submit a complete application. WTH – how many years has KIP/UBE had to plan for this work? KIP Costanza.
The SDM (the decider) is waiting for information and doesn’t know how long it will take to get it. That’s how prepared KIP is in applying for permits – first, KIP didn’t get any permits before trucking away tonnes in 2020 and still can’t put together an application to the satisfaction of the governing body.
KIP still hasn’t applied for permits for the clearing and work within 7 metres of a steep slope. Everything this developer touches turns into a sleazy mess, in my opinion. 🙂
Thanks to a fellow landowner for providing these emails from today.
I sent Daniel Arbour an email asking him to correct a statement he made on the Union Bay Bulletin Board. Arbour changed the wording but did anything but correct his error. Arbour chose to ignore the email below from Liz Archibald, Section Head, South Authorizational Environmental Protection Division, BC Ministry of Environment and Climate Change Strategy, who stated “During the review phase of the application, the application was found to be deficient. The application has since been sent back to the applicant to submit a complete final application. The applicant has not communicated when we should expect the final application package.”
Arbour claims to have read the info I forwarded to him which included the email below and determined the information to be “… reviewed by the Province and is getting re-worked.” When asked where he obtained the ‘reworked’ information, he refused to respond. There is no application submitted at this time. Union Bay Estates must submit a complete final application. Does Union Bay Estates have the ear of our Director who refuses to state the application was deficient?
Well Daniel, how about manning up and clarify with Union Bay residents the misinformation you are currently spreading? I asked, did he speak to someone who told him the application was being ‘reworked’? Didn’t you take your own advice about minimal due diligence or it doesn’t apply to you? Your words: “You could have contacted me. You could have checked to see if Union Bay Estates has lawyers there. You could have contacted our EA Teresa. Any of the above would be minimal due diligence.”
Arbour does the minimum due diligence in providing accurate information to landowners. He is fine when the info is flowing one way, (from him), but the second you have a follow up question, he runs away and wants CVRD staff to answer for him. Is he our representative or not? Goober.
This is the email chain regarding the misinformation Arbour had posted and his cowardly actions.
The black soil is the coal soil excavated from the old railbed which KIP covered and used as a berm in the top portion of the picture. KIP has covered the black coal soil now with other fill after trucking it to the Discovery Centre area.
Noticed someone posted a pic of a billboard in Vancouver to the Union Bay Bulletin Board. Other posters stated the billboards have been up for a couple of years. You would think the billboard would have the correct address!
Lots of folk don’t have a clue what this developer is doing. Plus, we don’t own the land around the lake to raise the dam which would be be very costly.
This image was posted on Facebook stating it is a lift station for the new development. Funny, the guy posting the picture turned off comments about this and yet allows a free for all and joins in when discussing people he views as a POS (piece of shit). When it comes to the developer, no one wants to hear concerns and wants to keep things positive. The gloves are off though for people they deem beneath them. Obviously, the new Sheriff and provider of information to visitors regarding the development, isn’t aware of the sewer application glitch. Details, who cares about details?
Where is it going to lift to, since the application started Feb. 2018 was determined to be ‘deficient’ and the developer must submit a complete final application. This was probably ordered a long time ago, prior to the application being found ‘deficient’.
As of today the application is still “Pending Customer”.
