Team Save Linley Valley West is holding a public meeting on September 18, 2013 to inform the citizens of Nanaimo and build support for challenging a 353-home development in Linley Valley West recently approved by City of Nanaimo staff. The meeting starts at 7 p.m. at the Kin Hut located at 2730 Departure Bay Rd.
Over 6000 people have signed petitions to protect Linley Valley West‘s 300 acres of woodlands and wetlands. During the past two years SLVW addressed Nanaimo council five times to present evidence of the potential impact of a housing development on the ecology of all of Linley Valley, including the publicly owned Cottle Lake Park and DL 56 in the eastern side of the valley.
On Feb. 27 2012, council voted almost unanimously to consider ways of acquiring Linley West lands, then reversed that decision in a vote at the next public council meeting, with no debate.
