MVA Housing Team Meeting

Dear Team members,

Confirming our MVA Affordable Housing RAT Meeting from 6:30 to 8 pm at St. James Church, 303 East Cordova, Vancouver. We’ll meet in the Boardroom of the Church. Please gather at the Chapel Walkway and I’ll escort you to the Boardroom. If you are late, please text me at 604 727 3042 and I’ll come to get you at the entrance to the Chapel Walkway.

We are monitoring Temporary Modular Housing and as the City of Vancouver announces a meeting about new locations, we will encourage MVA member organizations located in those neighbourhoods to attend in support.

Community Land Trust (CLT) - this has many parts:

a. a small team is writing a grant for financial support of an MVA Civic Academy on CLT in May or June 2018
b. another team is planning the Civic Academy
c. others are working with the North Shore group, Richmond and others - all interested in CLT 
d. we are monitoring the Hogan’s Alley project through the COV’s False Creek Advisory Committee because that project is interested in CLT

We are waiting for a meeting with the COV on the Cambie Corridor Phase 3.

We will continue with the Agenda we started at the RAT Training on Monday:
Group discussion:
a. Rounds: What drew you to this team? What skills to you bring to the team? What skills do you want to develop?
b. Team introductions by the co-chairs: What is the purpose of the team? What have we done on this campaign so far?
c. Plans for the next steps: Building the team; Plans for the research actions; Reporting back to the Strategy Team
At the last Team Meeting we formed 3 sub groups:
WestEnd Forum on Affordable Housing prior to the Municipal by-election: Deborah, Vincent, Ray
City of Vancouver Pilot Project: Deborah, Pat, Vikki, Octavian
Civic Academy on Community Land Trusts: Deborah, Richard, Peter
The 4th sub team - working on a power analysis with the Chinatown Action Group has been cancelled at their request. 
Please let me know if you wish to join any of those sub teams even if you can’t attend Wednesday’s meeting.
Thanks, Pat
