The Town of Gibsons wants to giveaway Winn Road in a two-part deal they are calling a “Land Exchange.”
The Town has drafted a Land Exchange Agreement outlining its intent to “exchange” ownership of publicly owned Winn Road for ownership of land between a hotel and condo building in the proposed George hotel and condo complex.
This land area is described in the Agreement as a “road dedication area,” or “public plaza.” This area was labelled a “Pedestrian Plaza” when the George project properties were spot-zoned in October 2015.
In reality, this land is an undevelopable “view corridor” that the Town of Gibsons requires of any development in the Gibsons Harbour Area. In other words, this is no land exchange, its a blatant giveaway of a public asset.
