A proposal to carve a subdivision out of almost half a Metchosin property owned by the Boys and Girls Club has left the mayor and residents alarmed and feeling betrayed.
The non-profit organization purchased the 98-acre property from the province in 2004 on the premise that the land would remain untouched and be used entirely for youth camps and programs.
i don't know. it's 40 acres to be divided into 8-acre parcels. has it had a tax exemption for years? yes - when it was being used for child programs. when it becomes housing - 8 houses - it won't get any tax breaks.
