Letter to the editor: Development rezoning

Mayor Giuliano and councillors Ripley, Warshawsky, Iddon and McSkimming supported approving the Brickers Road development rezoning.

The betrayal is disturbing on two points.

First, the decision is illogical. The area is rural and rural residential is the appropriate zoning, not single family or high density. The city has numerous parcels of land waiting to be built out and we do not need this inappropriate designation.

Second, the process has been disappointing. No voters supported the rezoning. Also, previous public consultations where no voters supported the development were also ignored.

So, would Mayor Giuliano and councillors Ripley, Warshawsky, Iddon and McSkimming explain to voters how their voice can be more effective.
