Affordable Housing means different things to different people. To help the community better understand affordable housing, the City of Quesnel, through the ourQuesnel: Sustainability in Action process, is taking on a number of actions. First, thanks in part to funding received from the Real Estate Foundation of British Columbia, the city is developing an affordable housing strategy to identify medium and short‐term goals and actions.
A special session for the public to talk about affordable housing has been set for Monday Nov. 26, from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. at City Hall. It will provide:
• An opportunity to learn more about the different types and availability of affordable
housing in our community.
• A review of the city’s draft Affordable Housing Strategy.
• An opportunity for local housing stakeholders to meet and discuss projects, with an eye towards creating or fostering partnerships between them.
In addition to the open house, a newsletter describing various types of affordable housing and the strategy development process will arrive in people’s mailboxes in the coming days.
Quesnel is developing a comprehensive, community‐wide, long‐term sustainability vision, plan, and process through the ourQuesnel: Sustainability in Action initiative. This initiative is being led by the city of Quesnel, with participation from a wide range of stakeholders. Housing and land use was identified during this process as one of 10 key strategy areas for the community to focus on.
