I think it's wonderful to see Holyrood growing and businesses booming, but it's so important to keep Holyrood's natural beauty up front and centre. I agree with previous comments that mention how important it is to have a good town plan. I've noted the three houses being built in the bog, with bog for fill that comes up over the siding... what's with that... are their any town regulations about that? I've also noted the many leaks in our water system... may be time to look at more than just a patch up job!!.. Tiny lots and backyard development should also be a no no!!

They have a hard enough job to keep up with the snow clearing as it is now! Imagine when all this new development happens....Good luck...We are going to need it!

A full-fledged grocery store would be most welcome. With all this anticipated growth, imagine if we could also get a recreation complex to service Conception Bay Centre, whether it be located in Holyrood or not; facilities such as the pool or Robert French stadium in CBS are over-crowded now. Personally, I would like to see Holyrood have more to offer its residents besides a place to sleep.

Sure things are happening or will soon be happening in different areas of the town. Let;s not lose sight of our communinty to these bigh builders and developers. Driving through the southside area of the town and look at three basements being built, back filled with "Bog". Doesn't seem to be the ideal building development!!! Antipciapte trouble there. Where are the regulations for these. Let's keep the size of lots they way we are used too. We don't need small lots, cramped locations and reach out and touch your neighbor construction. Of course with this jump in housing and increase of people we need increased services. Garbage collection, recycling increased, water & sewer services which are current, updated, and available. What we currently have is old, water leaks everywhere. Can the services handle the additions, water services, fire protection, snow clearing, recreational needs. Town PLan!!!! It's going to have to be what it needs to be and has to be enforced. Personally, can't see it happening myself. Status Quo!!!

Goobie better get a town plan in place if he wants development in Holyrood that balances rural and urban aspects of the town. The last thing he wants is another mess like the one that has occurred and continues to occur in Paradise.

As a resident of Holyrood, I am very proud to see the town develop and grow into a thriving community. I just hope that with the increased develoment and a soild town plan, we can finally take care of some long outstanding infrastrure issues. Gravel roads should now be a thing of the past!

...and in CBS. Cripes what a mess there. That so-called CBS By-Pass has been touted for about 10 years and critical infracture for it's completion ONLY TO SEAL COVE are not even tendered yet . I'd estimate the distance from the By-Pass at Seal Cove to the Holyrood bridge to be a good 16 kms.
