Growth and Development

As soon as the building moratorium was lifted, growth and development began at a rapid rate. 'For Sale' signs sprung up all over communities as well as on Route 214. This year's weather has also brought it's own difficulties and many residents have seen first hand what the lack of trees can do when facing stormwater management. Below are a few other concerns about growth and development on the Mayo Peninsula.

  • Accelerated pace of development is taking place without adequate infrastructure in place.

  • Communities lack notification/information to understand impacts of new development.

  • Frequent variances are granted from existing zoning requirements.

  • The existing Adequate Public Facilities Ordinances (APFO) fail to achieve their intended goals, and current building codes fail to account for the environmental fragility and limited emergency ingress/egress on peninsulas.
