Petition to Charlottetown City Council (Mayor Phillip Brown, Alanna Jancov, Greg Rivard (Chair of Heritage and Planning Committee) to deny a building permit to Pan American Properties (Tim Banks) at 15 Haviland Street, Charlottetown, PEI

Charlottetown City Council recently approved an 8 story, 99 unit waterfront development proposed by Pan American Properties (CEO Tim Banks). We the undersigned urge Council to deny a building permit on the grounds that it has not gone through an adequately rigorous design and review process. 

If this development is allowed to go ahead, it will change the aesthetic of this quiet, residential neighbourhood. The scale of it will overwhelm the existing surrounding buildings, many of them Heritage properties. Traffic density, destruction of a communal green space, environmental concerns relating to increasingly frequent storm surges due to climate change, impingement of water view to residents of neighbouring Renaissance Place (many of whom are Seniors) are just a few of the concerns expressed by citizens.

We are deeply concerned about the bylaw change in 2012 (including "as of right to build") which permitted developments of this magnitude to be approved by Council without any public input.
