Residents near Mooney’s Bay are feeling “betrayed” and still holding a grudge against the city for changing a concept plan before selling the old Bayview school to a developer for $16.5 million.

A public meeting scheduled for Wednesday night will let people provide feedback on Canoe Bay Developments’ proposed mixed-use community at 3071 Riverside Dr. before the project application goes through the land-use approval process at planning committee and council.

Canoe Bay wants to build a mix of homes on the 10-acre property, marketing the units to older adults. According to Canoe Bay’s website, there would be 27 townhomes, 36 apartment “flats,” 42 loft-style apartments, 247 units in a six-storey apartment building and 277 suites in a six-storey retirement residence. There would be a park at the south end and commercial tenants along Riverside Drive.
