City’s south-end plans aren’t getting realized

The South-End Community Plan was completed in 2010, yet nothing notable has been initiated.

To the Editor,

The South-End Community Plan was completed in 2010, yet nothing notable has been initiated. The traffic flow around Bayview School remains the same and no community gardens appeared.

But the Wellcox Lands are the new interest for dreamland designs by staff, and council’s new pet.

Meanwhile the cruise ship dock sits empty. Maybe the Nanaimo Port Authority could call up the group that wanted the Boat Basin and get them to build their fancy marina on the estuary side of that dock, leaving the other side for all the cruise ships flocking here. The port authority could use the money to fix the Boat Basin and keep moorage rates low for locals, to be fair.
