[Multifamily buildings] increase population by drawing it in from the Mainland. They don’t fit the character of the island. They are ugly.
[The project] doesn’t have to draw from the Mainland if Bowen Islanders want to live at the Cape. And by the way we design this, by nature of this being an island, the development would naturally attract those who share island values for the environment, wildlife, quietude, community, healthy active lifestyle.
