Voices comment: A positive shift in position with the change in the majority vote on the School Board in the November election. Trustees Forward, Skinner, Higgins and Stanley demonstrated that they have heard the community loud and clear.
Quoting in part from the North Shore News, link to article is here:
‘North Vancouver school trustees are taking a step back from plans that had pointed to the sale and future development of Cloverley and Lucas Centre lands, saying they want to re-consider community opinions that urged the school district to hang on to the properties.
A majority of trustees on the newly elected board of education indicated their shift in approach during discussion of the City of North Vancouver’s draft official community plan at a meeting Tuesday night.
Trustees voted to ask the city to remove the properties from special study areas in the OCP.’
