A tax rate increase of five per cent is excessive especially when compared with other municipalities, and with an increase in density it will get worse.
I am appalled by the decision in favour of increased density in Oak Bay which was based on a slanted survey completed by an inadequate number of residents.
The previous council changed a bylaw with regard to building size which caused so many problems that it had to be redrawn. It will not be so easy to change zoning back to single family.
Don’t make another major mistake.
