I attended the meeting held Nov. 23rd. at which time I voiced my opposition to this development. Several years ago we were told it would be 65 units. Now we're told it is 290 units and along with that basement suites and coach houses will probably be allowed to help purchasers. This means our little community is going to explode! Let's round it out to 300 units. At least 2 people per unit is 600 people but we all know that the majority of units will have more than 2 people so we are looking at least 1,000 people ( most likely 1,200+). Each household will have a minimum of 2 cars, some more so that is another 600+ vehicles on a roadway which is already crowded during summer months. The excuse is that it will provide lower priced homes but even the cheapest single unit will be in excess of $800,000, more likely 850,000-900,000. That is still out of reach for a lot of families. The people who will be moving into these homes would want garbage pickup, streetlights and the other utilities that are provided in urban areas. They will not be willing to adapt to our rural lifestyle. Their lifestyle will be inflicted on those of us who want a more peaceful, more basic lifestyle. I was upset when I heard 65 units were planned but I'd settle for 65 units but never close to 300! Tell the developers to go somewhere else. Most of us don't want them.

The hydrolist was introduced as having done a report for the FVRD as well as for the mine owner.
Can you please send a copy and /or let me know when posted on the website.
He mentioned that it takes 6 days for runoff to travel subsurface to the lake, but also commented on how quickly runoff is absorbed by the aggregate. It was good to hear that sewage treatment is at a high standard to remove nitrogen and phosphorus, but the concerns mentioned tonight we're also about runoff contamination from the lawn fertilizer, pesticides, etc. So sharing the hydrologists reports should help answer those questions.

Thanks for your answer tonight regarding MoTI involvement. Does FVRD get any timing or proposed Lougheed hwy expansion plans, when developments are reviewed? We thought that since the Hemlock Valley OCP is already approved by the FVRD board, that you'd have more details?
We'd hope the highway would be improved, well before anything at the mine may happen.

Where will all the garbage be taken to, the additional residences would overwelhm the transfer station.

What is the possibility that those who do not get septic, water services, or upgrades; and live in the area, will see increased taxes for this addition to the area, and the upgrades.

Would there be any money to look at increasing the NFFD Hall to accomidate a possible 2nd truck or First responder vehicle? Also have you considered a full time firefighter for that hall.

With all the added homes, and the fact that basement rental suites will be allowed, have you looked at the traffic on Hwy 7. I would expect this will add at lease 1000 vehicles to the area.

Has standpipe and Hydrants been investigated for the NFFD to be able to respond to home fires?

How much water capacity is there? I am concerned that the connection to the lake Errock water system will jeopardize that water supply. I would like to see sanitary services for lake Errock included in this plan, not as a "maybe in the future" idea.
We will need improvement to the highway and school capacity.

Where is the water supply coming from ? Can Lougheed Highway accommodate anymore trafic as it is only two lane highway ?

I don't have a problem with progress and development provided it is done intelligently and with respect to current residents. I also feel that people who will have their lives disrupted should get reparation. We need to have the option of connecting to the septic/sewer system at no cost to the homeowner, we need our 'water debt' paid off and we need GWEB Holdings to advocate on our behalf to have natural gas brought into our area and our hydro grid improved.

What about water and septic for all these extra buildings in the Lake Erick area? Extra Traffic will be a problem also getting in and out of this building site?
