Open letter to ministers Brad Cathers and Elaine Taylor:
The Hamlet of Mount Lorne’s local advisory council wishes to express its profound thanks to you for your support in securing a final Subdivision of Rural Residential Lots Clarification Survey. Justification for this survey was based on the results of public consultations and the hamlet council’s recommendations – but primarily in response to a petition signed by 121 property owners representing 89 titled lots. This process to confirm property owners’ opinions, on the issues of preferred minimum lot size and subdivision model, has been a true and positive test of participatory democracy.
Council would also like to take this opportunity to encourage all Mount Lorne property owners, who may not have already done so, to immediately complete the survey return form and mail it back to the land planning branch before the June 30 deadline.
Peter Percival, chair
Hamlet of Mount Lorne
Local Advisory Council
