I am writing regarding your story about a plan for a four-storey apartment building on Mary Street, “Neighbours unhappy with revised plan for 41-unit apartment building,” (The Lake Report, Jan. 26).
This proposal is really alarming and a real threat to this area of the town.
Actually, all of the town is now under threat.
This zoning request will set a unacceptable and possibly irreversible precedent, if approved.
The height is totally unacceptable and must be reduce as it overshadows everything in the area.
It is a massive building, totally out of place for this area.
If it is at least reduced to three storeys, the developers could avoid many of the problems they have brought on.
The expression “hornets’ nest” comes to mind. This is a chance for the new town council to now show us some real leadership and concern for our beautiful and historic town, which is constantly under threat from this type of inappropriate development.
Councillors must do the right thing. This is a real test to see if our election choices were correct and can be counted on.
The clock is ticking.
