City Council Meeting of April 23, 2019

Council had only one public meeting this day. They did have a secret one as well but of course we can’t be there to tell you what happened in that. (the mayor let some of the cat out of the bag later on just before the start of question period)

In this meeting you get to hear about a number of things.

Urban Systems appeared but not to talk about any particular project they have going – nope, they were there to explain who they are, how they are organized and what they do. Did you know that Urban Matters who is helping with Flood Recovery matters is part of Urban Systems? So if you’ve ever wondered about this outside firm our town spends so much money with it’s worth a listen.

The Boundary Flood Recovery team lead, Graham Watt, was also presenting an update on Housing. Council has moved discussion about Snow Clearing to a future date – which will likely see them discussing Snow in the middle of the Summer . . .

One of the biggest pieces of news came out in the Late Items – in an earlier, in-camera, meeting the City and BC Housing had been discussing the possibility of a land swap. Specifically the City would like BC Housing to consider putting the Supportive Housing development on the 4 lots the City has purchased on 70th Street immediately adjacent to the housing development currently proposed for the space between the Women’s Transition House on 19th Ave. if BC Housing goes along with it this will require a public consultation process because of zoning changes. That promises to be a very interesting process considering people near both locations do not want the project in their locales . . . you can get the gist of how rocky this may be from the feedback they got in the question period.

YouTube has changed things a little bit. After you press on a slice button a new tab/window will appear and the video will be positioned at the proper place in the meeting BUT you now have to press Play to start it playing.
