Room for improvement?

Filed under: News — Jocko @ 7:44 pm

As noted in the May 2008 North Pender Local Trust Area Islands Trust newsletter “The Pender Wave”, road improvements are slated for North Pender. According to the newsletter, “Saanich and the Gulf Islands MLA Murray Coell visited North Pender recently where he joined Local Trustees and community members to announce improvements to our rural roads. The Ministry of Transport will be providing $1.5 million worth of paving on; Otter Bay Road; Bedwell Harbour Road; Canal Road and; Hamilton Road. An additional $400,000 has been allocated for resurfacing on; South Otter Bay Road; Hoosen Road; Clam Bay Road; Port Washington Road and; Razor Point Road.” Only the stretches of each road in need of improvement will be paved. No mention was made of improving roads in Magic Lake Estates, many of which are in pretty sorry shape.

The North Pender Local Trust Committee encourages public involvement.  To help plan the future of North Pender Island contact Gary Steeves at 629-3595 or Ken Hancock at 629-6610.  The Local Trustee Office is open by appointment by calling 629-6033.
