Area D still needs answers

The Area D Residents and Ratepayers Association wants residents to have as much information as possible before voting on whether or not to join the city.

Atop the group’s distopics at its next meeting on Wednesday is the proposal by Campbell River to extend its boundary southward into the more populated northern region of Area D.

Although a date for the referendum has not been set, it is expected to be held this spring.

“Although only the directly affected landowners get to vote, this will affect all Area D residents one way or another,” says Bob Solc, vice-chair of the ratepayers association. “Many important questions are still unanswered.”

Rod Nugent, chair of the ratepayers sssociation, said it’s been difficult to get accurate information on the city’s amalgamation proposal.

“The decision...is a major one for the affected landowners,” says Nugent. “With all the rumours and political spin out there on the Area D sewer issue, we are trying to get down to the facts.”

The meeting takes place March 19 at Shelter Point Distillery (4650 Regent Rd.) in Oyster River at 7 p.m. Questions for the ratepayers can be e-mailed to: adrrassoc@gmail.com
