Proposed plan will delay hillside development

This so-called “land swap” is a lot more than just an exchange of agricultural lands.

Dear Editor:

This so-called “land swap” is a lot more than just  an exchange of agricultural lands.

The 2008 Official Community Plan established two areas of growth: downtown densification and  additional residential development on our hillsides. If this new proposal is adopted, this action will discourage and delay future hillside investment and development.

Major error for Summerland.

The second point to consider. Closely following the 1996 and the 2008 OCPs, developers have invested a great deal of time and money into proposed developments in the western part of Prairie Valley.

Does anyone think that abandoning these developers will not have consequences?
