Remark 81

by in Housing September 24, 2020

“What would prevent the affordable housing from being overwhelmed by new people to Bowen looking for an affordable house. “you build it…. they will come” ( from all over) and make use of it thus again leaving our local seniors once again in the cold?”
We could market to locals first for a certain timeframe before advertising more broadly. In the process of attaining building permit, Bowen Island Municipality could announce what is in process, and the developer could open up registration list for locals. When permit approved, those on the list could have first chance for a defined period of time. This might be written into policy for approval? I believe this can apply not just to aging in place but to all residential development. (Candy Ho, COB)
