Stop the Gas Bar at 4700 Hammond Bay, Nanaimo
- City of Nanaimo Planning Dept
We are not opposing the convenience store, which is allowed in current zoning. WE ARE IN FAVOUR OF THE CONVENIENCE STORE.
The current Rocky Point-Hammond Bay-Stephenson Point Neighbourhood Plan states that there is to be no gas pumps allowed on Hammond Bay Road. The Hammond Bay area is a family, and nature oriented area with parks, and trails, trees, and a great deal of wild life. This is why we choose to live here. This is why the neighbourhood plan was built.
The Rocky Point-Hammond Bay-Stephenson Point Neighbourhood Plan is part of the OCP (Official community Plan) of Nanaimo. The OCP goals speak to families, neighbourhood villages, protecting the environment etc.
The Gas pumps are adjacent to Whalley Creek. A ESA (Environmentally Sensitive Area), which is approx 100 feet away from the pumps. This is a protected Salmonoid stream (park land, and ESA). This is the last place we should be putting pumps in our community.
There are 4 other stations within 6 km, plenty to already take care of the communities needs. MORE IS NOT NEEDED.
We, the undersigned, petition the City of Nanaimo that we are OPPOSED to the application by Federated Coop, to amend the Rocky Point-Hammond Bay-Stephenson Point Neighbourhood Plan to allow a gas bar at 4700 Hammond Bay in the City of Nanaimo.
