Tools to Build Community Acceptance of Non-Market Housing

November 26, 2020 | Posted byPublié par : CIP | Elevation
Neighbours often have questions and sometimes oppose the development of new non-market housing, especially supportive housing, in communities throughout British Columbia. BC Housing has created tools to help non-profit housing providers, service providers, and local governments address community opposition and gain acceptance for their projects. These include: • Community Acceptance of Non-Market Housing Toolkit • Exploring Impacts of Non-Market Housing on Surrounding Property Values Case Studies • Evaluation of Modular Supportive Housing We will cover key findings and how these tools are being used by planners to support development of non-market housing by BC Housing, the City of Vancouver, and the BC Non-Profit Housing Association. Attendees will learn about housing-specific community engagement, working with neighbours and local non-profit partners. The session will include small group discussions, where participants tackle sample case studies that highlight common challenges of community acceptance. Participants will apply the tools discussed along with their own experiences to brainstorm potential strategies for addressing common challenges.

Economic development fails by excluding segments of the population, criminalizing survival economic activities, displacing small businesses and cultural organizations, not protecting the affordability of job space, and prioritizing profit over people and planet. But it is possible for municipal economic development to contribute to strong and vibrant communities that work for everyone. When cities use an integrated sustainability framework to plan their economies – one that not only considers economic but also social, cultural, and environmental implications of its work – amazing things can happen. This panel will present the ways in which Vancouver is using a systems lens to plan for the future of its economy. The presenters are City of Vancouver and Vancouver Economic Commission staff, who will present their projects and, more importantly, how they are working together on economic development in order to achieve more holistic and integrated outcomes in order to 'change the system.'
