Welcome to Rockland!

This is a blog post that attempts to keep track of the momentous changes that are happening in our historic neighbourhood at 1201 Fort Street. These changes were mandated by Mayor Helps and Councillors Alto, Lucas, Thornton-Joe, Coleman and Loveday when they voted to approve the zoning change for this large property of almost 2 acres. They voted to change the character and density of Victoria’s historic Rockland neighbourhood to create more housing. They voted to approve an increase in the allowable buildable space in this new development by 4,000 square meters  – that’s 43,000 sq ft – over the normal zoning of 6,000 square meters. (That means that for every 100 sq ft of built space in Bellewood, the City awarded the developer 40 sq feet.) And, none of this space could be considered affordable as the selling price is in the range of $1,000 per sq foot (and higher.) In their opinion, their vote to approve this proposal was the best possible land use decision possible during, what is considered to be, Victoria’s worst affordability crisis.

  1. There are certainly quite a lot of particulars like that to take into consideration. That could be a nice point to convey up. I supply the thoughts above as normal inspiration however clearly there are questions just like the one you deliver up the place an important thing might be working in trustworthy good faith. I don?t know if best practices have emerged round issues like that, but I am sure that your job is clearly identified as a good game. Both girls and boys feel the impact of only a second’s pleasure, for the rest of their lives.

  2. I as well as my friends have been studying the good tricks from your web blog and then all of a sudden developed an awful suspicion I never thanked the web blog owner for those tips. Those people are already happy to see all of them and have actually been taking advantage of these things. Thanks for actually being well thoughtful and then for going for such quality topics millions of individuals are really eager to understand about. My sincere regret for not expressing gratitude to sooner.

    Lady Ga Ga (Lady? – the Madonna lyrics that she sings, and I use the word “sings” very loosely here with her electronically enhanced voice are crude and would not be uttered by a real Lady!). Lady Ga and Madonna is nothing more than a manufactured talentless twit whose only way to sell her “music” is to perform half undressed sporting a silly wig. I would imagine that 99.9% of the male viewers of this new video actually turned the volume off. Sex sells Madonna- fact.
