The following appears on the homepage of the District of North Vancouver website:
"Welcome to the District's Street Naming Contest page! A number of new road connections will be introduced over the coming years in Lynn Valley, Lower Lynn, Lower Capilano and Maplewood. . . . We're looking for suggestions and ideas that capture the distinct identities and characteristics of each area. If your suggestion is chosen as the winner, you will receive a street sign with your suggested name on it! . . . In order to have your suggestions and ideas considered, please complete the survey by Nov. 23, 2012," (dnv.org/streetnamingcontest).
The last time I checked, this densification had to go through public process. With the recent closure of the public hearing regarding on the Seylynn densification, there will be no public input about this at council meetings until council makes its decision.
I find it a conflict that this notice appears on the district site. It's another concrete indication that public process is not being followed. People are being brainwashed into believing that all this densification is a "done deal."
It is truly amazing how blatant they are with their developer-driven planning and the breakneck pace at which these developments are being foisted on the residents of the DNV.
