The City of Edmonton is considering a guideline/target of 10% affordable housing in neighbourhoods all across our city. What might that look like in your neighbourhood? What questions or concerns do you have? What ideas do you have? What do you think is a healthy response to new neighbours and new units of affordable housing? What’s your wisdom on affordable housing?
This workshop gives communities in Edmonton’s West End a chance to start the conversation early; before new projects or proposals come to the table. In this workshop we will hear:
1. A presentation on the types of Affordable Housing needed.
2. A non-profit developer who consults, builds and manages units of affordable housing.
3. A story from a person who has needed help affording a home.
…and then we will have a chance to talk about it with each other as neighbours.
Neighbourhoods invited for this are those west of 170th over the Henday, South of Stony Plain, and North of the River. Direct invitations have been extended to all local community leagues, faith communities, and home owner associations. But this workshop is open to any interested neighbour.
Here’s the details!
Refreshments and Childcare are provided. This is a workshop, not a drop-in information event, so please plan to join us starting at 1:00 and stay for the conversation.
