I truly find it a bit amusing all the attention given to this one proposal of a
nine-story condo unit on William Street.
I just wish all these folks would pay as much attention to Port Stanley WWPT. schedule class "C" EA. 305 pages long. Master fire plan. A harbour with no business plan. A pier which will cost us money. A beach that does cost us money. Parks to be built. My challenge to you all is where do you think the money for all these things is going to come from? We know the answer to that! From us, of course.
All these proposed projects will go ahead and the money will have to be collected.
When we try and run this community as if it is a city the size of St. Thomas, with
the small tax base we have, it is going to hurt and it is already. Maybe this is
the wrong place for the said development, but unless we start looking at ways to
pay the bills, we are going to be in a lot of trouble.
These things are much more important to be having your say on but not nearly as
much fun. As for wanting your quaint little village, sorry folks, it has already
If we keep allowing growth as we now see it, we will need ten of this type of development
to pay the bills. SO! go ahead and spend 4 hours reading all these reports as I
have and then we will see what you have to say.
