Well, we’ve finalized the questions that we will be asking potential council candidates in the upcoming by-election on March 26. Here they are:
1. The South End Community has a vision for Nicol Street outlined in their newly created Neighbourhood Plan. If elected, what actions would you recommend to the city to transform Nicol Street from an outdated highway to a vibrant urban corridor?
2. The South End Community has a vision of creating parks space that is sadly lacking in the area. If elected how would you support and initiate the possible acquisition by the City of Nanaimo of either the properties at 901 & 925 Harbourview St. or 101 South St. for use as public parklands in the South End Neighbourhood?
3. The Port Authority has recently built a cruise ship terminal on their wharf lands. What would your vision for the neighbourhood abutting this property be? How will that impact our neighbourhood?
4. What are the ideas from the South End Neighbourhood Plan that are the most impressive to you and if elected how would you work towards their implementation?
Come back march 18…we’ll start posting responses then…!
