Join us at the West Vancouver Council meeting to show your support for affordable housing on the North Shore.
West Vancouver's Mayor and Council will discuss the planning department’s draft Affordable Housing and Diversity Strategy at the upcoming meeting on Monday July 4th. The report, although it makes reference to “non-market housing”, does not discuss the vital role community land trusts can play in building a non-market housing sector in West Vancouver.
Members of MVA's North Shore Housing Action Team and allies in the community will be at the Council meeting to reinforce the urgent necessity of community land trusts for non-market housing and to remind the municipal government that Acting Mayor of the District of West Vancouver Craig Cameron committed to work with MVA and District of West Vancouver Council to amend the official Community Plan to include housing security as a design principal; and use municipally owned land to leverage the development of affordable non-market housing, held for that purpose in perpetuity through a land trust or other mechanism, in West Vancouver.
