Potential site for sewage plant makes no sense

Locating plant near hospital, Jeneece Place doesn't meet industrial criteria

Re: VGH-area site to be considered by Westside sewage group

Seriously, this is getting truly tiresome.

Propose, with a straight face, to put an industrial sewage treatment/waste water facility a cigarette butt’s flick from Victoria General Hospital? A hop, skip and jump from Jeneece Place? Two hundred metres from a brand new multi-million dollar, mixed-use residential/commercial/professional development? And 150 meters from residential developments?

What part of “Find a site in an appropriate industrial location” is still completely escaping the committees? The public input process will be meaningful unless a knowledgeable correlation is provided between any proposed site and what is likely to be built on it.

I’ve been a vocal defender of doing this right for a long time now, but really, I’m beginning to wonder if all those people castigating the process and questioning the intelligence of everyone involved don’t have a point.
