Sent another email to Jodi Maclean at the CVRD asking about parks and trails, affordable housing, building permit fee and new DP numbers on CVRD website under Union Bay Estates.
Received this response from “anonymous” at the CVRD in a stand alone response to my question. If the webpage was updated regularly I wouldn’t have to send emails asking what’s going on. As it is, there is very little information regarding this development on the CVRD website.
Geez, reality is far removed from the letter from the President of KIP when it was called The Union Bay Community. Spewed bs about “all the heavy lifting”, water treatment plant, sewage treatment plant, blah blah blah. Coal hills would be remediated and sand was going to be barged in from Texada – can you believe it? KIP needs to update the photos to black beaches to be completely honest – ha ha, like that would ever happen.
Ole slick’s MO is to blame everyone else for the yearly delays since darkening Union Bay’s doorstep. What is it with this developer? It’s pretty clear this developer can’t be relied upon for information – it’s always the same old bullshit.
Hasn’t turned over Parks and Trails, Affordable Housing lots still not turned over (although slick can buy out that option so poor folks don’t live in/around the wealthy) and didn’t bother to submit an application to clear around the borrow pit. Look how much clearing has been done around that pit without an application.
From another individual who has been asking about KIP.
NO. Can’t say I’m surprised. Hope no one believed the bs KIP spouted Mar. 1, 2018 at the Kingfisher announcing Union Bay Estates launch and that homes would be built in May or June 2019. It’s interesting to read what KIP stated in this article. KIP never advised the sewage system applied for would not benefit the landowners of Union Bay as promised by this sleazy developer, in my opinion. Wonder how the landowners would have reacted to this information just 3 months after signing the water agreement with UBID in Oct. 2017. https://allthingsunionbay.com/2018/03/01/kensington-island-properties-aka-34083-yukon-inc-announcing-new-development-again/
The George Costanza of developers never applied for a steep slope permit to clear forest and then didn’t apply for a permit for a gravel pit to haul tonnes of fill away. The sewage application was deemed deficient and KIP still hasn’t submitted a complete application. The decision for the gravel/sand pit application appears to be in limbo waiting for KIP to provide more information.
How anyone can believe this developer is mind boggling. Just look at the actions right after signing the revised MDA in Dec. 2017. In Feb. 2018 KIP submitted an application to dump treated sewage into Hart/Washer Creek for a system exclusively for the development a mere 2 months after agreeing to the following in the MDA:
Received this today: KIP still hasn’t turned over the Parks and Trails or the affordable housing lots. The work being done prior to receiving permits is at KIP’s own risk.
