Just down the road Aragon is building several hundred condos at the Lampson Inn property.

Some new townhouses in the works in Sidney.

 

7 townhouse units are under construction at 10478 Resthaven Drive. The developer has since acquired a neighbouring property (10482 Resthaven Drive), and Council on March 15 endorsed sending the DP application for an additional 8 townhouse units to the Advisory Planning Commission for comment.

10482 Resthaven plans: http://www.sidney.ca...n_Dr_Plans.pdf 

 

All 15 units are 3BR with a single-car garage.

A six-storey apartment building proposed for Raymond Street South in Saanich was rejected by council in a close vote.

 

On March 22, council debated the merits of a 59-unit housing development planned for 3656 Raymond St. South before voting 5-4 to reject the application. Couns. Rebecca Mersereau, Ned Taylor, Zac de Vries and Karen Harper were opposed.

in a poor piece of reporting i think the councillors above that are "opposed" actually are the ones that supported the application.

Colin Plant put forward a motion to reject, not approve, the project, which threw everyone off. Voting yes meant you were voting down the proposal.

So Yes getting 5 votes and No getting 4 was actually backwards. But this is not conveyed in the article so they quote the 4 who “rejected” the motion but say the project was struck down by 5 councillors.

A bit of a boondoggle that day.

I am not sure if it's comforting or disturbing that incompetent civic leadership exists beyond the city of Victoria's borders.

I don't understand what the boondoggle is, motions to reject or refer an application are normal. It's a vote to support the motion on the table. Was it a mess during the meeting?

It’s untraditional for Victoria, and even the media was caught off guard, saying the four who supported the project rejected it (but it was the motion they rejected).

Of course it does, it just has the appearance of being tame by comparison.
