‘Estates’ sadly up for sale

The former River Bank Estates trailer park property is for sale. Asking price is $1.6 million dollars.

To the Editor,

It took longer than I thought it would—more than four years—but the outcome is exactly as anticipated. The former River Bank Estates trailer park property is for sale. Asking price is $1.6 million dollars. This long-vacant property has seen no development since homeowners, tenants and their families were evicted by a group of long-time Port Alberni investors.

Many of those affected lost their homes and equity. A large number also lost their health and quality of life in the name of a development that never made it past the sketch stage.

The price paid by the former River Bank Estates homeowners and tenants in the name of “progress” has been far too high. I sincerely hope any future development proposals presented to Port Alberni City Council will be given thorough scrutiny so that any residents possibly affected will not have to pay such a high price.

Debbie Molloy,

Port Alberni
