AMENITIES!!! DCC charges!! ...... and whatever else "staff" can screw 'em for........ these guys will soon get outta here.
Heard council just shot down a proposal for 60 economy housing units at Marina west. Councillors opposed the cutting of trees on the property, wanted the housing units to only be sold to Tofino(whatever that is) residents and that said units could not appreciate in value for resale. Developer apparently walked.
off topic. Don't know where else to post this TofinoWe just witnessed a guy fist punch his Dog several timesHe has long black hair in a ponytail and his large dog is black/whiteThis was in front of the shore building. supposedly he is a tofino tour guideWhen you see this asshole abuse his dog, report him immediately !
reading my post again. I think in my rage 'fist punch' was overstated. sorry but no dog deserves to be hit
He's a kayak guide in town. (his own company if I'm not mistaken)
I just about got in a fistfight with 10 French-Canadian hippies sitting in the middle of the sidewalk who wouldn't let me pass.
Ralf, I understand their is a community very similar to tofino that the Commercial hotels pay the majority of the taxes and regular living houses pay very little. Do you know of such a community?
so a consultant gets paid huge amounts to hold an open house. the people who go to the open house thinking they will be heard are delusional of course and they wont get a dime for making the effort to go out there and think about the plan.the consultant shills gather a pile of suggestions and opinions, nod a lot, pretend they are listening...and toss the papers in the trash. thats what they are paid to do...but politely.they will do what they want anyway and claim the public has spoken.
Our Council is so bass ackwards on most issues its hilarious. They are out of touch with what is really going on in the town of Tofino. Heaps of squatters vagrants and petty thieves this year. Sup contest gets denied venue goes ahead anyhow. 4 illegal campgrounds for workers who have no place to live yet the pirate campgrounds make out like bandits b/c of the no tax cash only way they operate? Increased taxes to pay for flower gardens where parking should be? WTF is this Council/Mayor doing...still dumping shit it the water. If I was Marina west I would just Lawyer up and kick them around a bit all the sacred trees are is a Quebec west squat just go check it out council. You know actual research.
Not to worry, Tofino will lilely tie them up in knots for years, Besides, Councillors are again claiming we don"t have any water for development. Round and round it goes, where it stops nobody knows
Ah! summer, really exposes the soft underbelly of Tofino. Coucillors who continue to speak eloquently on high and lofty causes, when it is clear they cannot manage the towns basic business. And every summer it gets more and more like some overcrowded carnival, full of surf lesson hucksters, petty thieves, beggars, yoga scammers, grey whale peep shows, and back alleys for juicing up in the tent, when you are off shift.Sure like those nice pastel cubist directional signs though. A nice touch. "Just part of the show folks, just keep moving please, don't look, just move along folks".
Anyone give a shit about the deplorable state of the public picnic park down by the 1st St. dock (in front of Fred Tibbs Condos)? What a disgrace. Maybe they could send that $100,000 a year guy down there to mow the grass and trim the bushes. The visitors who stroll by there daily must be really thrilled with this shameful sight. It didn't look like this when Sally looked after the parks...... maybe Rodgers needs to hire an assistant to help him "manage" this aspect of the district's "sustainability". Disgraceful!! Shameful! Tofino.
Latest logic is amazing a low cost rental (nightly) is persecuted for not declaring two extra rooms and that have been licenced by DOT for years...slippery but arguably trying to play by most of the rules. " Raver Bob" the florist has run a totally illegal campground and after hours event venue for years. No attempt to pay taxes or rezone until the Idiot amnesty this year by Mayor and council. Town has gone mad it no longer has any rules and discrimination is rampant. Time for a real change. I have a hard Time believing that all the councillors are this unintelligent. But what other conclusion can be reached.
