Press Release by Kitchissippi Ward Councillor Christine Leadman June 26, 2010.
Lansdowne Partnership Plan Releases 11th Hour Document that Defers Fulfillment of Key Requirements, Criteria and Major Decisions until November 24
Late on Friday afternoon, after most public delegations had presented, the only outstanding official document of the Lansdowne Partnership Plan (“Document 27”) was released. It dealt with much of the subjects that have come under the scrutiny by Councillors, interested heritage bodies and the public at large.
It proposes that most of the outstanding and contentious issues be deferred until “Stage 1” that will come before Council on November 24th 2010. It also deferred a key condition that OSEG and Staff were to fulfill to allow the June 28th vote to go forward. The comprehensive master site plan and an independent third party peer review of that plan are still missing. That is now not being done until November 24th.
