The RDEK is moving ahead with a contentious Official Community Plan for the Jaffray area.
Area B Director Stan Doehle encourages all affected property owners to read the document.
He says they’ve met with many stakeholders and residents and once they understood the potential rules, they were good with them.
Doehle asserts they’re not ramming the OCP through.
He says as an elected official, he wants residents want and ultimately he’s just one vote of 15 directors.
Doehle admits the two years of developing the plan, and the dispute that’s come along with it, has been the most trying experience of his political career and ultimately he will be disappointed if the OCP isn’t approved.
A public hearing will be held November 22nd before the RDEK officially votes on implementing the regulations.
Area A Director Mike Sosnowski was the lone Director to vote against the first reading of the proposed bylaws Friday.
He says Jaffray residents have reached out to him because they feel they’ve haven’t be listened to by their representative Stan Doehle.
