Community Conversation on Housing
Thank you to everyone that attended one of the open houses, workshops or filled out our survey. We have reviewed and consolidated all of the feedback received and will be presenting what we heard to Council on April 25, 2016.

The first question we are exploring is: WHAT Housing Fits? We want to know what people like and don't like about different ground oriented housing forms, and whether each housing form should be allowed in the city.
The second question we are exploring is: WHERE Housing Goes? We have created three land use scenarios for each neighbourhood (based on residents' association boundaries) that imagine really low density, really high density, and an in-between density version of the visioning maps. We want to know which parts you like about each scenario and how you would suggest arranging them when we create a future land use map.

All of the feedback we received (from the workshop, drop-in events, online) has been reviewed. We have prepared a report to Council that summarizes what we heard. Click here to read the report.
Council will use this information to set the direction for the next step which is to for us to create a draft land use designation map. We will gather community feedback on this map during the next round of consultation which will focus on the OCP framework (including the draft vision, goals, policies and the land use designation map).
Good design is key to good infill and growth. Another next step in the process will be for us to develop implementation strategies that explore what regulations and design guidelines should be required for the infill housing forms that receive support. There will be opportunities for the community to provide input throughout this process.
