Comox hotel could ‘destroy our marina community area’

Dear editor,
I was round the marina on Sunday morning.
The old Edgewater carpark had 60 cars parked and it was not full! This is essentially the private marina park. Where are these vehicles going to park when the new hotel is built?

Dear editor,I was round the marina on Sunday morning.The old Edgewater carpark had 60 cars parked and it was not full! This is essentially the private marina park. Where are these vehicles going to park when the new hotel is built?Is it true that the proposed hotel is only going to have one underground parking area instead of the original two? Is it also correct that they have already been granted a variance to allow them 20 feet of infill so that the one underground park can be bermed up so it is not really underground?We were told that there is nothing to stop these private marina customers parking on our marina carpark — tell us, where are Comox residents going to park?Seems like the marina users are going to lose all the western view of the mountains, the condo owners lose their eastern airspace and are completely overlooked by the hotel, which will lose them thousands in value.You know that when the Edgewater hotel first came up for public referendum. It was decided it would only be allowed on the empty lot at the back of the present car park. Ask Marty Douglas — he was there.But once again they got a variance without coming back to the taxpaying public.In a lot of people’s opinions, this is going to completely destroy our marina community area.What our council is allowing needs a good looking at!Robert Lamb,Comox
