Simpleton seems to have a lot of misinformation and is very passionate about spreading it. I have a good idea of who is creating all of his false facts, but I’ll not mention names so we don’t have to worry about the post being pulled again. I assume one of the moderators could shed some light on what happened to the original thread.Simpleton wrote:Lol, puts up building without permit...continues through out stop-work orders...screws over companies trying to buy land..

For starters, it was the airport manager's Idea to build my hangar right where it is now.
The airport manager has since moved on due to reasons unknown. (read below and you can probably speculate fairly accurately)
Fact 1. The entire hangar was completed from start to finish without receiving a stop work order.
Fact 2. The County of Woodlands Council has spent well over $100,000.00 of taxpayer money on their lawyers trying to devise a way to stop me from, as simpleton puts it “building wherever I want” on my property because of public outcry from a select group of people citing false safety concerns.
Fact 3. A “warning this is not a stop order” letter was received by myself and my contractors May 16 2017, two weeks before construction was completed under the authority of the Municipal government act. (not the federal aeronautics act)
Fact 4. The Hangar construction was completed May 31 2017.
Fact 5. The County of Woodlands Council unanimously voted on June 6 to re-zone the airport, and change the municipal bylaws to try and encompass the airport hangars into the municipal jurisdiction.
Fact 6. June 19 2017, After the rezoning of the airport and 3 weeks AFTER the hangar was completed, a stop order was received, back dated May 12 2017. The registered envelope it came in via Canada Post states it was sent on 14 June 2017, and received by myself on 19 June 2017, which I confirm is the date I received it at the post office.
Now can someone (other than simpleton) tell me why the County of Woodlands municipality would wait until AFTER a hangar was completed on privately owned land zoned as “Airport service district-Airside commercial”, go through all the trouble of rezoning the land the hangar was built on to “Limited Commercial”, rewrite the bylaws to include an entirely new “Limited Commercial” zone, then send a back dated stop work order with a date that matches a “this is not a stop order” document that they issued over a month earlier?
#3 "this is not a stop order" arrives at construction site May 16, 2017
#5 Council minutes Woodlands County June 6, 2017
#6 Stop order sent June 14, 2017. Strangely, it is dated for May 12 2017 a month earlier before the hangar was completed. It is also not possible to comply with any of the conditions because the current acting airport manager was not able to provide written approval, for "unknown" reasons.
Online tracking information for the stop order, Tracking Number RN157774076CA which is also printed on the stop order.
Well, I have to ask strangers, I'd come and ask for your support personally but with a handle like "simpleton" it describes a surprisingly large percentage of people at our airport.Simpleton wrote:.....and has the balls to come on here and ask strangers to donate cash to fight his legal battle.
Explain to everyone how I accomplished your accusation. And explain to everyone what someone would do with a 20 meter x 20 meter lot at this airport if they did purchase it. According to your logic they would have to obey the local bylaws and setbacks 10 meters from the front, and 10 meters from the rear of the lot. There are many properties at this airport right now that would have 0 meters of room to build without having to beg or maybe even bribe the municipality for a variance.Simpleton wrote:screws over companies trying to buy land..
Hypothetically speaking, let's imagine a little helicopter crashes into a hangar at the Whitecourt Airport CYZU, ignites and burns down the hangar at, oh, lets say... the local helicopter flight school's location. Insurance covers everything and the pilot miraculously survives uninjured. That smoldering pile of rubble full of melted little helicopters that was once a hangar built to federal requirements is on a 19.81 meter deep x 22.5 meter wide lot.
Let's diligently follow your supposed almighty and flawless County by-laws and build a replacement hangar using the Countys alleged mandatory 10-meter front and rear yard setbacks... You have negative 0.19 meters to build it on. BUT look on the bright side, you have a nice flat piece of dirt to store all of your aircraft on.
Maybe you could just park a camper on it and live in it for a few years like what is being done at this random hangar that may or may not be at the Whitecourt airport.
I'm really surprised with the rampant "I'm Telling" mentality at this "random" airport pictured above, that no one has ratted out the young couple taking up residence in a camper on an Airside commercial zone that has just recently turned to Limited Commercial...
Don't worry, I won't tell anyone, even though that is the one thing that any municipality can easily enforce at an airport.
(refer to the bylaw draft and proposed rezoning below that the County Council frantically drafted while my hangar was legally being constructed.)
