A revised supportive housing project on Elliott Street in West Quesnel will go before City Council tomorrow night, one that doesn’t include a shelter component to it.
The new proposal is for just 32 units of supportive housing with space for staff, programming on the first floor as well as common areas.
Gone are the two temporary shelter units for up to 8 people and space for 10 extreme weather beds.
The report that will go before Council indicates that the changes are the result of public consultation on the issue.
BC Housing currently has a request for proposals out for an operator of this new facility.
Council will be asked to rescind first reading of the Official Community Plan Amendment Bylaw and first reading for the Zoning Amendment for the original project and then give first reading to the new plan.
This new project, should it go ahead, would still require the operator to enter into a Good Neighbour Agreement with the City and other stakeholders, and for BC Housing to enter into a Housing Agreement with the City.
There will also be more public consultation with another open house and public hearing on the new proposal.
