Four delegates from the Save Linley's Hidden Ridge campaign will make a presentation to City Council about:  

  • the results of the public campaign and petition;
  • how this application contravenes OCP policy;
  • the inadequacies in the Developer's Application;
  • neighbourhood concerns about traffic and safety; and
  • the irreplaceable ecological and cultural value of Linley Valley and its Parks

We will also present to Council a way forward to protect Nanaimo's gem - Linley Valley.
