Nechako View Subdivision Grows
Prince George, B.C.- The development of the Nechako View Subdivision off North Nechako Road in Prince George just got a little larger.
Tonight, Council was asked to rezone another piece of property for another 8 lots that would link to the multi-lot development already under construction.
The main issue of concern is traffic.
Residents of neighbouring Edgewood Terrace have complained long and loud during the numerous rezoning applications leading to the current development, that there needs to be a new access to the subdivision. Narrow streets, no sidewalks, high snowbanks in the winter, all cited as reasons for a secondary access point.
Those who spoke against the rezoning also spoke of broken promises over the years from the developer, and pointed to the removal of trees along the Nechako River bank. City Staff say a stop work order was issued on that clearing, and remedial action has been undertaken, but, reminded Council, that particular piece of property is not the one that was under consideration for a rezoning this evening.
A secondary access will be provided from North Nechako Road, as Emergency services ( police and fire) have indicated there would need to be another access road for the sake of safety.
Councilor Terri McConnachie said the addition of a “handful of lots is not a deal breaker for me” and she supported the rezoning as did her Council colleagues as the rezoning was passed unanimously.
