27 years – is that procrastination ?

A large delegation of residents of Arbour Lane went to council Monday to ask for help. A large delegation of residents of Arbour Lane went to council Monday to ask for help.

The residents asked why is the Town of Oliver issuing permits and extensions on the construction of a house that was started in the ’90’s.

Another question – people live there but there is no occupancy permit and no visible way of getting in the home or to allow emergency vehicles to gain access.

The town’s senior staff indicated they will look into it.

The home is located on Lakeshore Drive just south of Arbor Lane (6500 Block) The home is located on Lakeshore Drive just south of Arbor Lane (6500 Block)

In a brief to council residents stated the following:

“We believe that this has gone on too long and that the Town needs to take some sort of action. For as long as any of us can remember, our neighbour has been building a house and add-ons across the easement from us. He always appears to be making some slow progress but has not yet completed anything. The house, which is clad only in sun-damaged house wrap, is surrounded by excavations, half-completed concrete forms and exposed rebar. Surrounding that are piles of rubble, rubbish and derelict cars. We have no idea how he accesses the house as there are no stairs to any of the main level doors and we are concerned that emergency services would also have difficulty in the event of a medical emergency or fire. We don’t know whether he has permits because he doesn’t display them in a conspicuous place as required by Bylaw and we wonder why he would be allowed to start a new phase of the project when he doesn’t appear to have completed the previous one.”

    An additional issue is that video games are usually serious naturally with the key focus on studying rather than leisure. Although, there is an entertainment aspect to keep your kids engaged, every game is frequently designed to work with a specific group of skills or area, such as instructional math or science. Thanks for your article.

    Why is this town
    like that it
    seems the bylaw officer drives around with eyes closed
    we have weed problems
    you thank I am wasting my time to send in reports on weeds
    town workers drive around doing nothing
    take that dead tree out river by bridge
    they drive around eyes closed
    is it hard to get a job in this town?

    Publisher: The tree is in the river and cannot be pulled out – Ministry of Environment – nothing to do with Town. There are many problems in a village like ours – more important than weeds. All workers are assigned duties including priorities for the by-law officer. I surely hope they are not driving with eyes closed. That is dangerous.
