What is 'Envision the Cape'?
Where there is curiousity and honesty, there is a chance for positive change. At Cape Roger Curtis a shift in generations and investors opens an opportunity to overcome our history and reconnect with aspirations for a balanced community at the Cape that islanders can believe in.
There is no rezoning plan at the moment. We want to learn about your perspective. What would you think about ideas to:
- preserve 50% of the remaining lands as permanent habitat
- provide a community where people can live a rewarding life until the end of their days
- establish affordable rental homes and diverse housing options in one of the most beautiful places on the island
- welcome people seeking rejuvenation to a spiritual and wellness retreat
Our first goal is to ask how you would like to be consulted. We are contacting previous opponents to seek commonalities. We are bringing small groups to the land to discuss what is still there and what could become public park. We’ll be adding questions, articles, comments we’ve received here or heard offline or on Facebook – and continuing for a couple of years or so. Please let us know how this makes you feel and what you would like to see happen in future at the Cape. Use the comment form below to say whatever is on your mind.
We want to overcome mistakes that The Cape on Bowen has made and build connections to people who were disappointed with decisions in the past that changed the Cape in ways they didn’t want. We seek changes not just in rezoning, but in our understanding of one another. We know it will take time. And it will take generosity of spirit. We trust there is an abundance of that on Bowen Island.
