Date Posted: July - 2018

Description: The proposed redline revision that has been submitted to the County requests that the vacant condominium units draft approved under 42-CDM-2013-01 (Delphi Court) be added as part of the draft approved vacant condominium plan 42-CDM-2007-15 (Neighbourhoods at Delphi Point).  There are no other changes being proposed to the draft approved plans.
