Port Pitt Meadows?

Is area on the verge of becoming another Port Kells?

Editor, The News:

Re: Noise is too much (Letters, July 17).

If Dave Douglas thinks the noise from Onni’s use of a land compactor is too much, wait until it starts developing phases 3 and 4. It has only just begun.

The next phases will be metres away from existing homes surrounding Osprey Village, as well as the community in Bonson Landing. The noise will go on for years unless we can convince our mayor and council to not approve Onni’s submission to rezone this land from agricultural (not in the ALR) to light industrial.

I urge all Pitt Meadows residents, and in particular those who live south of Airport Way, between Harris and Bonson roads (Phase 4) to make your feelings known to our council now. Unless, as Mr. Douglas states, you want Pitt Meadows to become Port Kells.
