Councillor Peter Lund deserves more than a C+

From our viewpoint, he has been a refreshing champion in helping the community bring the surge of new commercial development under control and more in line with community values.

Hi Tim,

Just a note in response to councillor Peter Lund's C+ rating from a resident of his district of St. Margaret's Bay. Yes, councillor Lund is new and unproven in council.

But from our viewpoint, he has been a refreshing champion in helping the community bring the surge of new commercial development under control and more in line with community values. He was instrumental in passing an HRM Development Agreement bylaw amendment which now requires that big developments such as box stores meet community standards; he also endorsed a community visioning process for Tantallon at the Crossroads that will result in new "Village Design Standards" being implemented. He's been thoughtful, a listener, responsive to community concerns, a facilitator and we feel very lucky to have him represent us. Three community groups recently presented him with a Community Recognition Award for commitment to St. Margaret's Bay. He gets an A with a lot of us here. ---John Leon, Seabright
