The Cadboro Bay Residents Association is readying for another fight to save Haro Woods after the Capital Regional District’s Westside Solutions Technical Team identified the area as technically feasible for a sewage treatment facility.
The site was one of 20 identified in Saanich, Victoria and Oak Bay as part of the early exploratory process to identify new sites for the ill-fated secondary sewage treatment project, which stalled after Esquimalt council rejected a rezoning application for McLoughlin Point in 2013.
Immediately following their election at the association’s annual general meeting on May 13, members held a special executive meeting to reactivate the land use committee to protect Haro Woods.
Elected CBRA include Eric Dahli, chair; Peter Meekison, vice chair; Jerry Donaldson, secretary; Lyn Wray, treasurer; Dave Lynn, Barbara Raponi, Michael Tripp, Eric Ochs, Jennifer Kay and Bill Dancer. See more at cadborobay.net.
