Condo fighter strikes out again

A second attempt to overturn the Ontario Municipal Board approval of the Bay Beach condo project was rejected last week.

Board chairman Lynda Tanaka refused Patricia Nowak Murrett’s request to review the OMB decision from last January.

She wrote that the request was made well beyond the 30-day limit and rejected Murrett’s claim that she “was not aware of the instruments approved in the decision.”

Murrett told Town council in December when the request was filed that the zoning bylaw got switched up somehow between the time it was passed in March 2010 and when it was considered by the appeal board.

Tanaka wrote that Murrett has been an active observer of the issue and there’s no excuse for having acted so tardily to request the review.

Also on that front, there is a court proceeding regarding the lawsuit against the Town scheduled for early February.

The court will hear the Town’s motion to dismiss the case brought by seven individuals through lawyer John Keenan. Murrett is one of the plaintiffs along with Norma Nowak and others.

    I just hope that once this court case is over that the councilors will realize that they are to represent all of Fort Erie and start acting in the best interest of the town not the six residents suing us.

    Actually, I think the RFP calls specifically for a proposal from someone who is opposed morally, philosophically, politically and legally to the project. That would be my guess.
