Thirteen people signed a letter sent to the Coastal-Burwood Community Board saying residents’ views were not given due consideration. The community board made a recommendation to the city council to approve the proposed lease for the new site on the Ascot Ave side of QE II Park on September 18. The city council granted the lease on September 28. A comment from the community board in a report to the city council acknowledged that a leaflet informing residents of the final decision of where the school would be rebuilt should have been sent out earlier. Before the community board’s recommendation, the city council delivered leaflets to properties on surrounding streets about the proposed lease. It offered residents the opportunity to submit feedback. But residents say the map on the leaflet caused confusion over where the site would be because it wasn’t clear enough. Coastal-Burwood Ward councillor David East agreed there were “some anomalies” with the map which may have been interpreted in different ways. He suggested at an onsite meeting there needed to be a more widespread leaflet drop to clear up confusion and give more residents an opportunity to submit their feedback. •Turn to page 7 20% off ALL 2018 CALENDERS Applies to full price calenders only.
