The positive response shown by the almost 200 residents who attended recent community meetings revealed strong support for the False Creek South Neighbourhood Association’s new planning initiatives for more affordable housing and services to meet new and existing needs.
Organized through the Association’s standing committee, RePlan, and its community planning workgroup (CPG), the meetings were made possible by numerous hours of behind-the-scenes work by resident architects and other interested neighbours in envisioning False Creek South’s future.
They have been sharing ideas with Broadway Lodge, which hopes to establish a new facility in the Creek. That brings Vancouver Coastal Health into the mix and, potentially, BC Housing, the agency that develops, manages and administers a range of subsidized housing options and programs for the provincial government.
Once these ideas from the CPG took visible shape, the Association arranged the community meeting on January 25 at the False Creek Community Centre
