Port Stanley News RSS Feed  Letters Proposed 9 Storey

February 21, 2016

They tell me that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Well, I have been beholding the drawings as depicted in this week's Beacon and I must say that I cannot find any beauty at all.

On the contrary, I, and I think most residents of Port, consider this an eyesore that has no place in our village. It will also serve as a precedent for future high rises both beachside and within the village its self.

Must we destroy the peace, tranquility and the very essence of village life in the name of vast profits for the few?

Editor's Note: First, the article in The Beacon is more of an editorial or Letter to the Editor than it is an article, because it is all about the author's experiences and opinions.

Second, it does not say where from or when it obtained the "drawing" of the Prespa proposal. In all the Prespa submissions to council that I've seen on this proposal, no drawing of this nature was ever shown. Years ago, at a public meeting held at the Legion on this project (before it ever went to Council), the scale model was quite attractive and looked nothing like the drawing in The Beacon, although the area did not keep the "Tobacco Road" look it currently has.

Third, go to the public meeting on this proposal scheduled for 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, March 1, 2016 at the community centre upstairs at the Port Stanley Arena, if you want to get the truth about this project.

Correction: The picture of the drawing in The Beacon can be found on the municipal website at page 15 of 49 It takes about 2 minutes to download.
