Neighbourhood opposed to badminton facility

This area in Cordova Bay is zoned residential and should stay so

In response to your article “Badminton players rally for Cordova Bay site,” I believe if you surveyed the residents of Cordova Bay you would find that most oppose the rezoning of the site.

This area is zoned residential and should stay so. The proposed building for the site belongs in a commercial/recreational setting with lots of parking, not a residential one. This is not something the neighbourhood uses or needs.

As a community club, no taxes are paid to Saanich and we feel that the site should be developed as it is now zoned with taxes being paid. The building has been there for 66 years and it is now time for it to go. We do not need nor want increased traffic to the neighbourhood. The neighbourhood has a small village, quiet feel and we would like to keep it that way.
