"We will bring a new vision to this community with a bunch of people in a new election," said Colin Johnson.
"This really relates to protecting the Benchlands (real estate proposal) as the major facility for residential lots for the future of Pemberton," Johnson said with regard to the Village of Pembertons recent announcement that for the time being it will not give further consideration to the Ravens Crest proposal. "But our goal is to make sure that were in the game for the next 12 months and to provide (information to) a new council.
"We started nine months ago with Ravens Crest and collectively Cam (McIvor) and I have probably worked on it for a year prior, spending close to half a million.
"This (refusal) is truly out of left field and its coming from two people, Susan Gimse (SLRD) and (Pemberton Mayor) Elinor (Warner)."
SLRD Chairman John Turner said he could understand why the Ravens Crest group would be annoyed but he said it was just a case of bad timing.
"The Benchlands is in Area C which is director Gimses area and thats how the SLRD gets involved in this situation. Currently the near term growth plans for Pemberton were focussed on the Benchlands with the facilities and infrastructure the sewer and the water designed for the long term growth being in that area.
"When the proposal came from Ravens Crest, its not that we feel that its not a good proposal, its just that we think its probably a little premature."
