RE: Developement Baie L'Ours - 100 Condo sur Chemin Caron!
NO to bulldozer cleared "droit passage" along stream.
NO to damaged water source.
NO to Developer incompetence.
NO to new unmonitored lake access point.
NO to Municipal incompetence.
The municipalité de Lac-Simon has allowed a private developer to clear a "droit passage" along a stream that lies along chemin Caron. The work was done in early August - probably the weekend of August 9, 2008.
The "droit de passage" is for the proposed 100 condos/homes on the slopes of Baie L'ours on chemin Caron! That means 100 more septic tanks, 100+ more boats...
How much development is too much development, especially for saturated Baie L'ours?
