Proposed Nordic development a travesty

The application for re-zoning the lot at 2077 Garibaldi Way, Nordic, from its current single-family zoning to zoning for a 74-apartment, three building complex, is simply outrageous.

The surrounding neighbourhood is all single-family, duplex or triplex-zoned. The lot is on a quiet cul-de-sac. The re-zoning from six to 222 bed units is just too big a leap!

Three apartment buildings jammed on to this lot do not fit the quiet residential neighbourhood of Nordic. This proposed development would have a huge negative impact on the character of our neighbourhood—huge increases in vehicular traffic, foot traffic late at night and noise levels generally.

I am deeply distraught after having watched the council meeting where the application was presented. It appears that the municipal planning department wants to push this re-zoning through as quickly as it can, and I feel that we Nordic residents are being railroaded.

I appreciate the housing crunch, but the proposed development’s density does NOT fit in with the surrounding neighbourhood. This application for re-zoning is truly an insult.
