Need money? Why not unload the 3.5 acre site?

It’s a mess right now, certainly any development would be better than it is now

On reading the list of items that can be chopped or reduced to save us homeowners from huge tax increases, nowhere do I see a mention of either:

Selling the 3.5 acre parcel downtown to not only have immediate oroceeds from the sale, but also after development to be able to have annual tax dollars coming in to the city coffers. There was a beautiful artist’s rendering of a proposal a couple of years ago that included townhouses as well as shops/cafes, yet city council turned it down. It’s a mess right now, certainly any development would be better than it is now.

The second is the sale of city owned land for the same reasons – additional tax dollars coming in.   Why hang on to bits and pieces of land here and there?

The third concern is the antics at Rivercorp.  How can the CEO convince businesses to move to Campbell River if he can’t figure out what his budget is? Certainly as part of a business case for relocation one has to understand basic budget techniques.  When was the last time Rivercorp created any jobs in our community, except in thier own shop.

Anyone got an answer?
