Well, it’s official, even though a violation of our contracts and thus the law. Ralph Bayers now owns both the Green Building and the Brown Building. Both are taxed at commercial use rate.Continue reading “Parcel of Our Common Lands is Now Private Commercial Property”
But sales and resales have exploded. Close to 50 lots have changed hands and maybe a dozen more are pending sales.
This means lots of new owners and potentially lots of new homes being built.
The introverts among us may not be too happy about the masses flooding in, and although I am one of those types, I remain optimistic that the new owners will be more actively engaged in preserving and protecting the qualities of our special place while working together to improve and enhance existing infrastructure and amenities.Continue reading “Abbecombec Explodes!”
A new lot has been created from our common lands.
On September 27, I discovered on Viewpoint.com that a lot containing the green building was subdivided from the common lands and now has its own PID. Upon further research, I found that this lot is still owned by HarbourEdge.Continue reading “UPDATE ON GREEN BUILDING! It’s been subdivided!”

In order to make it as easy as possible for lot owners at Abbecombec to indicate their opposition to any potential abrogation by HarbourEdge of our license agreement regarding the common lands, such as subdividing and selling a portion to anyone, I’ve posted a form below for you to fill in and submit.
The most urgent and current important issue is the potential subdivision and sale of the portion containing the green building. This simply cannot be allowed.Continue reading “A Simple Request”
Note: If you are already familiar with the issue and want to show your support quickly, there is now a more direct way to indicate your opposition to the subdivision and sale of a piece of the common land here: A Simple Request
An urgent message to all Abbecombec Lot Owners
Emailed March 17, 2020
My fellow Abbecombec lot owners, it is with deep concern and urgency that I reach out to all of you today.
It was announced some time ago, via the Facebook Group, that HarbourEdge is considering subdividing off a portion of our common lands, specifically a parcel containing the green building, aka the Rec building (the building is specifically mentioned in our License Agreement as part of the common lands.) They allegedly plan on conveying ownership to Mr. Ralph Bayers, together with the nearby parcel which contains the brown building. (HarbourEdge owns this lot, PID 40580094, separately. It is not common land.)Continue reading “Action & Action Now!”
This is an ode to one of my favorite places on earth.
I hope it stays like this forever.
I am NOT in favor of the land adjacent to it being sold for commercial use.
Let us hope that does not go forward.Continue reading “You Don’t Know What You’ve Got Til It’s Gone”
By November 25, 2019 I’d heard that all of the damaged vehicles and vessels in the Green Building had been removed and the debris inside had been ‘cleaned up.’
I asked my winter resident to snap a few pictures so I could see how it was ‘cleaned up.’Continue reading “Hurricane Dorian ‘Clean-up’”
As mentioned elsewhere Hurricane Dorian made a direct hit on the Halifax Regional Municipality. I sat it out in my house on top of Astaak Point. We lost power and it remained off for 5 days. Which was not a fun time.Continue reading “Hurricane Dorian Aftermath”
