    Could you please confirm why there is only a 'Community Vision' plan attached to the proposal? It is undated, and references only a 2001-2002 process, 20 years ago. Why is the final community plan not attached?

    SandraM asked 3 months ago

    The Hastings-Sunrise Community Vision from 2004 is the most recent planning policy for this neighbourhood. 

    This rezoning application is being considered under the Secured Rental Policy - a city-wide policy that applies outside of community plan areas.

    The cost of living in this city has gone up a lot. This leaves a lot of my neighbors who are low income in fear that they cannot pay their rent. A new building is very welcome here but how have you considered how it will impact the low income reside ts? How many of the units will be geared towards low income housing? If none, why not?

    FE asked 3 months ago

    This proposal has been submitted under the Secured Rental Policy. This policy aims to increase the supply of market rental housing in areas that are close to transit, jobs and services. There are no low income housing or social housing requirements in this policy, however the maximum rents are listed in the Rental Incentive Programs Bulletin. Although these rents won’t be affordable for all households, the proposal would create increased housing choice and secured rental housing for the life of the building.
