|Trillium BUY Law|
"Twenty years ago the Savary Island
community said no to a 90 parcel gated
community on DL 1375 proposed by
Roger Sahlin’s RRR Construction and
David Syre’s Trillium Corporation.
The proposal put forward included 90 waterfront parcels, an airport and private airplane hangars.
The plan was proposed for the last intact District Lot on Savary; a 133 hectare parcel in the center of the Island and the largest and last wild space on Savary.
The RRR and Trillium Proposal
(Source: SILTS - March 4, 2011 letter to PRRD)
On August 22, 1995 the Powell River Regional District (PRRD) held a public hearing on Savary to seek public input for the gated community bylaw, locally known by many as the Trillium BUY Law.
Held before the fire hall was built, the gathering took place at Duck Bay under the trees.
Much of the community expressed opposition to the plan and ultimately the PRRD withdrew the Bylaw and began the Savary OCP process."
