United Church in Bed With Evil Developers!

Who knows what backroom deals have happened between the United Church of Canada, Developers, and DNV Council, but it looks as if yet another mega-development is about to foisted on the people of Lynn Valley.

Yes, it's Metrotown all over again, and the god-fearing folks at Lynn Valley United Church (home to Friday Night Live) intend to build a massive four story strata complex, as well as a new church.

The applicant, the trustees of the congregation of Lynn Valley United Church, propose to redevelop the site of the existing Lynn Valley United Church with a new church building of approximately 577 square metres (6,214 square feet) and a new four-storey apartment building containing a mix of 71 strata apartment units and 4 apartment units to be owned by the North Shore Disability Resource Centre (NSDRC) and operated by the NSDRC as affordable rental units for those with disabilities. 

Can it be coincidence that Marcon Construction & Development is now sponsoring Friday Night Live?

And why does the application make no mention of where we will go in future to have our Christmas trees chipped?

If you agree that there are far too many unanswered questions there will be a Public Hearing March 18, 7 pm at District Hall. Details here.

Well Barry, it looks as though you've found the only kind of development palatable to the Lynn Valley NIMBY's, the church-sanctioned variety!
