May 18, 2010 CFAX 1070

ONE SAANICH COUNCILLOR IS CONFIDENT A MAJOR TRANSPORTATION HUB WILL BE FACTORED INTO THE NEW DEVELOPMENT AT UPTOWN. SPEAKING ON CFAX 1070 TUESDAY WITH MURRAY LANGDON, DEAN MURDOCK SAYS NOW THAT PHASE ONE OF THE CONSTRUCTION IS NEARING COMPLETION, THE HUB CAN GO TO THE DISCUSSION TABLE.

“At this point, the only development permit that’s been issued is for what’s been built. What goes beyond that is still subject to staff discussion, public discussion and full debate, so I have no doubt that one of the integral components of that design is going to be the inclusion of a transportation centre.”

MURDOCK SAYS ALTHOUGH THE BEST MODE OF TRANSPORTATION TO BE USED IS STILL AN UNKNOWN; WHAT IS KNOWN, IS THERE NEEDS TO BE IMPROVEMENT ON THE MOVEMENT OF PEOPLE THROUGH THAT CORRIDOR
