Dates of existence


The Rainbow Park Ratepayers Association formed in 1988 in response to the proposed expansion of the Patricia Bay Highway. The Association expressed concerns and provided feedback to officials regarding the McKenzie interchange design, expropriation of houses, alternate transportation options, and noise attenuation methods, (specifically berming). The group opposed the loss of Rainbow Park for the project, and their efforts resulted in approval and funding for a replacement park (opened in 1995), and a pedestrian overpass. During this time, they provided input on the Christmas Hill Slopes housing project by the South Island Development Corporation. After the highway project was completed, the Association continued to work with the Municipality on issues like traffic calming and other safety concerns, development, and zoning. The group produced a quarterly newsletter, the "Rainbow Connection", to communicate with residents. Larry Bomford was the last Chair of the Rainbow Ratepayers' Association, which folded in 2015.
