Public approves land swap for parkade near hospital

One person opposed land swap of city park with private property.

Only one person opposed a land swap between the City of Nanaimo and developers of a new hospital-area parkade.

The City of Nanaimo launched an alternative approval process in March to gauge public reaction to a land exchange that would see Canadian Cache Development Corporation receive a 83-square-metre corner of Beaufort Park for the equivalent of the company’s 1515 Dufferin Cres. property.

The AAP process requires opposition from 10 per cent of eligible voters or 6,500 people.

The results allowed council to move ahead with the Beaufort Park Dedication Removal and Disposal Bylaw.
