Fairwinds Community Plans Will Bring More New Residential Development
Posted: Jun 15, 2011
The Schooner Cove and Lakes District Neighbourhood Plans for the Fairwinds Community at Nanoose Bay have passed a major milestone on their way to becoming a reality after the Regional District of Nanaimo board gave third reading to bylaws incorporating both Schooner Cove and the Lakes District plans into the Nanoose Bay Official Community Plan. Highlights of the two plans include the revitalization of Schooner Cove as an oceanside marina-oriented residential village, with the addition of a public waterfront boardwalk, shops, cafés, neighborhood services, parks and walkways. The plan for the Lakes District calls for a 300-acre public park, as well as a mixed array of single and multi-family homes, all connected by hiking trails and pathways.
Fairwinds is a well established residential community with several current real estate projects on the market. Ocean and golf course view lots set on a quiet cul-de-sac at Bonnington Ridge in Fairwinds are now selling, with only four lots remining. These Vancouver Island view lots range in size from 1/3 to over 1/2 acre.
