838 Ewen Avenue, a City-owned site, has been identified for consideration as a modular housing project. The proposal is for a 44 unit housing development with support services for women who have experienced homelessness or are at risk of homelessness. If the project was to proceed, the City would retain ownership of the land, and lease the site to BC Housing, the Provincial agency responsible for this initiative. BC Housing would supply the modular housing units and the operating funds and the development would be managed by an experienced non-profit operator.
We understand that it is important for you to be informed about this proposal and that you have an opportunity to learn more about it and ask questions. Please join us at a neighbourhood open house where you can review the proposed project plans and speak to members of the project team.
