Cadboro Bay forms Haro Woods group

Capital Regional District’s Westside Solutions Technical Team include Haro Woods among 20 sites identified for sewage treatment facility

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
