At its July 22, 2014 directors' meeting, the Regional District of Nanaimo gave fourth and final reading to the Schooner Cove and Lakes District bylaws, bringing the land use approval process to a successful conclusion. At the end of June, the Provincial government set the stage by approving the Phased Development Agreement (PDA) that will govern the project over the next 20 years. With the July 22 vote, the land use approval process that began back in 2008 is finally complete, creating a path forward for a vibrant new oceanfront village as the centerpiece to sustainable residential neighborhoods that respect and protect environmentally sensitive areas. This is very good news for both the current residents of Fairwinds as well as those contemplating a move into the area. A vibrant, fun, pub/restaurant overlooking the sailboats and yachts of Schooner Cove Marina is sure to be a welcome sight! Retail shops along the waterfront will attract visitors too. Well done! To the staff of both Fairwinds and the Regional District of Nanaimo. Congratulations for achieving final approval of this milestone! Now the real work begins....
