NEW WEST POLICE ISSUE BREAK & ENTER ALERT

New West Police have issued a notice that break and entry crimes are on the increase. Whether condo units or parking areas, criminals are posing as 'residents' to gain entry.

QUAY CONSIDERS
CHARGING UP

Led by the forward-thinking strata council of LAGUNA LANDING, the QCB members who represent all strata complexes in the Quayside area have determined that the entire community needs to explore the logistics of Charging Stations for Electric vehicles.  Over the next several months, many avenues will be reviewed to see if providing such stations in each building is feasible going forward.  The QCB will also find multi-governmental sourses of funding to assist in related expenses.

Click on READ MORE, to review some of the latest info on Charging Stations being considered.

BOSA & DEGELDER
'HAMMER IT HOME'

The pounding of pylons from both the Bosa and Degelder developments are testing the patience of area condo complexes.  This is especially true for those who live in the adjacent Westminster Landing co-op housing.  These residents, who have been inundated with the relentless installation of the pylon at the Bosa Development, now have to prepare for the same sound scape from across the road with the Degelder development.  The best thing?  Everyone knows that it is a short term pain for a hopeful long term gain.

WILL QUAYSIDE LOOSE ITS IDENTITY?


Is it possible that the Quayside community might not exist if City Council has its way?  To the surprise of the QCB and Quay residents, the City has been working on revamping the image of the waterfront.  The QCB only found out about this redesign initiative when it was reported on July 7, 2016 NEW WEST RECORD.

What has come forward is a new image and plan to create a new ‘Riverfront’.  The Record article focuses on the development of a single logo that embraces the many attributes of our waterfront, but given the Quayside Esplanade is a major tourist destination for those visiting New West, it appears the new logo makes little or no reference to it. 

While the debate whether to include a tin solider lingers on, the QCB encourages you to have your say on what may end up being the new name for your New West home. Contact your councillors with this link.

[Update]
ANIMAL KILLER IN NEW WEST GIVEN UNSUPERVISED
DAY PAROLE

Given the high number of animals and animal lovers on the Boardwalk and Promenade at the Quay, it is important to keep you informed of Ms. Bourque.  This convicted Animal Killer, and resident of New West, has been granted day passes - unsupervised. She is entitled to two hours per day. Ms. Bourque has been deemed a “high-risk violent offender” by the Corrections Branch after being convicted in 2013 of causing unnecessary pain and suffering to an animal, killing or injuring an animal and possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose.

The Ministry of Justice, Corrections Branch has advised through a public notification today that Ms. Bourque “has an escalating criminal history, has offended violently against both people and animals and is considered a high risk to re-offend.”

For more on this story and to see a photo essay in order to recognize this person can be found at MSN/CANADIAN PRESS.  Also you can read a brief at 24 HOURS VANCOUVER.
