    It seems unfair that this will only be 4 storeys when 6 storeys will be allowed on most arterial streets. Will there be a new commercial node in the area in keeping with the Climate Emergency Action Plan?

    RecommendedAnonymousUserName asked 29 days ago

    The Climate Emergency Action Plan recognizes the need to create walkable complete communities that puts 90% of people within an easy walk or roll of their daily needs by 2030. Accomplishing this goal through land use changes is key to the success of the plan. The City is going through this exercise, to bring walkable, complete neighbourhoods city-wide, through the ongoing consultations and work on the Vancouver Plan. We invite you to participate in the development of the Vancouver Plan at this website: https://shapeyourcity.ca/completeneighbourhoods

    I understand this application is being considered under the Affordable Housing Choices Interim Rezoning Policy. On-line it appears this policy took effect in 2012. The definition of "Interim" is = provisional or temporary - why is this (outdated) policy still being used?

    Kris G asked about 1 month ago

    The Affordable Housing Choices Interim Rezoning Policy (AHC Policy), a project may be considered for rezoning if an enquiry submission was received prior to June 30, 2019, the closing date for taking in submissions under the AHC Policy. This application’s precursor enquiry submission was received on June 28, 2019, and can therefore be considered under the AHC Policy.

    What has changed from the developer’s earlier application in 2018 which was rejected other than an increase from 21 units to 24 - why are we back here again? Has the hospice closed and people are no longer trying to live out their remaining days in dignity and with respect?

    LINDA GLASS asked about 2 months ago

    This rezoning application proposes a single, four-storey townhouse building with 24 secured market rental units and a 1.23 FSR, as compared to the previous application with two rows of townhouse buildings and 1.30 FSR. The current design is setback further from the property line shared with the hospice, providing an opportunity for a wider landscape buffer. The design was developed by the applicant based on comments heard during the previous rezoning application’s public hearing, and applicant-led consultations with the Vancouver Hospice Society.
