UPDATE: Video of the meeting. Didn’t get all my questions answered as some of those answering wandered off to things I didn’t ask, but have come away with more info. These meetings are so important and easy to attend and get answers from those making the decisions.
The first half hour is a presentation by each Area Director and the second half is questions.
“…the new certainly (sic) around this project…” It appears in Dec. 2017, the new certainty had a shelf life of 3 years.
The much hyped 2017 revised MDA which supposedly enforced the sewage section. This developer appears to sign agreements without the intent to proceed according to the conditions. Gets one foot in the door and then slithers around trying to find a way around the stipulations agreed to.
Here’s previous posts regarding KIP’s intention to dump treated sewage into Hart/Washer Creek for the exclusive use of the development until a regional system we will pay for so the developer can hook into. Remember the MDA states the developer would provide a system that Union Bay and Royston could hook into – now it’s assbackwards. https://allthingsunionbay.com/?s=KIP+sewage
Thanks to a fellow landowner who sent me this voicemail from earlier this month regarding KIP’s sewage application. Voice is Melanie Mamoser, who is handling the application.
The Homer gif is added due to the fact you can’t upload just audio to Youtube.
KIP not approved yet for the larger system which would be the dumping of 1875 Cubic metres of treated sewage daily into Hart/Washer Creek. KIP has approval for a ‘holding tank’ for the Discovery Centre.
KIP still hasn’t paid the fees for the building permit for the Discovery Centre, hasn’t turned over the 6 affordable housing lots, and hasn’t turned over the Parks and Trails.
The above document was sent to the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure from the CVRD “..in response to the referral received June 4, 2020, concerning the proposed revised 38-lot strata subdivision…” application by 34083 Yukon Inc. (aka Kensington Island Properties, Union Bay Estates and all the other names dreamed up by this developer).
Why did the CVRD advise the Ministry the proposed system did not comply and yet now are considering allowing it? What is the justification?
Allowing KIP to build the sewage system dumping 1875 cubic meters of treated sewage into Hart/Washer Creek daily exclusively from the development while waiting for a regional system the developer can hook into is NOT “…providing a comparable sewer amenity for the community.”
As the months pass, the CVRD’s wording and justification for allowing KIP/UBE to install a sewage system exclusively for phase one, once again demonstrates the ability of this developer to renege on agreements and screw Union Bay landowners.
