LETTER OF THE WEEK: Lynn Valley Town Centre debate packs district hall
The first District of North Vancouver council meeting of the new year is generally a drab affair with the usual two or three council watchers sitting in the gallery wishing they were elsewhere, as business from the past is rehashed like a bad hangover.
But not so this year when on Jan. 7 a massive and vibrant crowd from Lynn Valley flooded the council chamber and late comers had to be ushered into a separate room where they watched the proceedings on closed circuit television. Thanks to everyone who attended, the mad rush to fast track the Lynn Valley Town Centre plan has come to an end.
DNV council got the message loud and clear that the people from Lynn Valley do not want their communities negatively affected by overdevelopment specifically in the form of high rise towers.
Council has promised an “indefinite public engagement process” in which everyone can offer their input in creating a plan which satisfies primarily the residents of Lynn Valley.
One can only hope that the people of Lynn Valley will continue to participate in overwhelming masses throughout the Lynn Valley planning process.
George Koch, North Vancouver
