UBID Trustee Makes Announcement on Behalf of Union Bay Estates aka Kensington Island Properties.

I posted about the building permits July 2, 2020. https://allthingsunionbay.com/2020/07/03/kensington-island-properties-aka-union-bay-estates-building-permit-for-discovery-centre/ What’s new?

At the Union Bay Improvement District Strategic Planning Session today, Trustee Haraldson stated he had an announcement and felt it had to be made. First, why is he blindsiding the Board? Second, what’s the big deal about UBE being “awarded” building permits that happened 6 months ago?

Carol Molstad asks Ted if that means they (UBE) have approval for their sewer system and Ted replies “on the Discovery Centre, that’s been given approval” and goes on to say another thing in the works is a sewage system coming down to Royston and Union Bay.

As of yesterday, Jan. 25, 2021, Union Bay Estates aka Kensington Island Properties sewage application was still in the “review and decision phase” according to the email I received from BC Ministry of Environment.

This is an excerpt of Haraldson making the announcement. Big shot.

This is the entire Strategic Planning Session today. Lots of information discussed at this meeting as Gary Nason, Janice Swanson, Chair Ian Munro, Trustee Susanna Kaljur, Trustee Eve Gaudreau, Trustee Ted Haraldson, Water Supt. Dan McGill, Fire Chief Ian Ham and landowner Carol Molstad who is on the Conversion Advisory Committee were all present and contributed.

Union Bay Estates aka Kensington Island Properties Sewage Application – MOE Aware of MDA Requirements.

Why is KIP proceeding with this application knowing it does not comply with the MDA? Because that’s what this developer does – never happy with any agreement, always wanting to change the conditions previously agreed to. That’s why nothing ever materialized all these years except constant whining about how it was everyone else preventing the development from proceeding.

In the FOI response there were emails between the CVRD and the Ministry regarding KIP’s sewage application.

Received the following response to my email question if the CVRD made it clear to Melanie Mamoser that KIP’s application did not comply with the MDA.

More from the FOI response to Kensington Island Properties aka Union Bay Estates application to dump 1875 cubic meters of treated sewage into Washer/Hart Creek daily.

KIP’s Plan if Regional System Not in Place for Phase 2 – Dump More Treated Sewage in Washer/Hart Creek From Development

Kip’s plans if a regional sewer plan is not in place for Phase 2. Again, no mention of Union Bay or Royston.

It’s no wonder the CVRD is concerned. After all, they will own the system KIP installs after 2 years. Do they want to own a system dumping into Washer/Hart Creek indefinitely?

Another example of KIP trying to force whatever works for KIP on everyone else. Don’t forget McMahon believes “Because we’re dealing with government timelines don’t matter.” With that attitude it’s no wonder there has been so little activity over the last 15 years. The timeline will be whatever KIP determines.

Because we’re dealing with government timelines don’t matter.

The pdf’s I’m posting links to are some of the pages I extracted from over 1200 pages in the KIP sewage application FOI response received by a fellow landowner who is allowing me to post this information. Thank you!

Emphasis added by me.

Kensington Island Properties aka Union Bay Estates Sewage Plan is for Phase 1 Only – Will Wait 10 Years for Landowners to Fund Sewage System

The current proposed sewage plan for the development does not comply with the MDA. 

This info was provided by a landowner who submitted an FOI on Kip’s application to dump 1875 cubic meters treated sewage into Washer/Hart Creek daily.

So KIP obviously has no plans to contribute to a south sewer project if they’re only building for Phase 1. Just looking after their own development. Waiting for the landowners to pony up for a system KIP will tie into when needed.

Promises, promises.

Red emphasis added by me.

KIP Screwing Union Bay, Again

 I’ve learned that the device you showed me is in fact a stream gauge station comprising telemetry and a stilling well. It has been installed, under permit from the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations, by a consultant for Kensington Union Bay Properties. It is collecting data as part of the field investigation works related to the design of the property owner’s proposed waste water treatment plant.

From: “Sewage treatment facility with reclaimed water for irrigation to the golf course, without an outfall to Baynes Sound” Kensington Island Properties.

To: Let’s dump shit into Washer/Hart Creek so that if flows into Baynes Sound.

Follow up to this post: https://allthingsunionbay.com/2020/11/26/what-is-being-tested-monitored-in-washer-hart-creek/

All the games this developer plays, it’s hard to know if it’s all show again and more hot air. Really, what benefit to Union Bay has materialized from all the promises over the years? What KIP does generate is a shitload of fantasy “studies by consultants” to suck in the rubes, marks aka landowners. It’s just the cost of doing business stringing the suckers along since 1996 when Kensington Island Properties was formed.

Is this application to dump 1875 cubic metres treated sewage in Washer/Hart Creek daily just bluster, hot air, bullshit so that everyone panics and wants to appease the bullshitter?

KIP can’t build 1 house until there is a sewage system in place. KIP has always stated KIP would build a wastewater treatment facility. When pigs fly! Has anyone ever seen a developer so desperate and pathetic? KIP wants the landowners to foot the bill and will weasel out of ever building a wastewater treatment facility. Disappears for years and then shows up and creates havoc. Do not believe the bullshit it spews. This developer is prairie doggin.

KIP in a nutshell: Intentionally misled the community when they expected honest communication, announcement going ahead, stagnant, stagnant, stagnant, clear some land, stagnant, stagnant, announcement going ahead, clear some land, stagnant, stagnant, stagnant, announcement going ahead, clear some land, move some soil, remove hillside off McLeod Rd for fill, stagnant, stagnant, stagnant… applies for same permits intermittently.

The South Sewer Project was not going to have an outfall into Baynes Sound either. https://allthingsunionbay.com/2019/12/08/remember-the-south-sewer-project-was-not-going-to-outfall-into-baynes-sound/

So what is the plan? The CVRD announces plans with KFN with no mention of Kensington Island Properties but KFN has no concerns about KIP’s plan of dumping 1875 cubic meters of treated sewage daily into Washer/Hart Creek from a system KIP SUPPOSEDLY plans on building. Shouldn’t they be working toward a system together?
