Few attend open house

Little attention paid to Bentley Road proposal.008

A proposed industrial area in the Bentley Road area attracted little attention last week.

On Thursday, the municipality held an open house from 4 to 7 p.m.

Municipal planner Julie McGuire said of the 22 people who attended, nine filled out questionnaires, with seven in support and two against.

There were no changes suggested.

The proposal must now go to the Agricultural Land Commission and the provincial Ministry of Transportation before it returns to the municipal council table.

The open house on Thursday was the second time the municipality has presented information to the public on the proposed industrial area.

The first open house, held several months ago, drew 34 people.
