Vancouver

Speak Out Against Condos at 611 Main St


6:00pm
Thursday February 21 2013

Venue: Vancouver City Hall
Address: 453 W 12th Ave

Following the Historic Area Height Review for Chinatown passed at City Council in 2011 there has been an onslaught of condo development proposed and approved along and around the Main Street corridor. The 17-storey condo tower proposal at 611 Main is the first really major development. It could have terrible gentrifying effects on the low-income housing and assets surrounding blocks.

Come to city hall to speak out against this rezoning proposal and demand council protect the existing low-income community. To sign up to speak call or email the city clerk and leave your name and contact information: publichearing@vancouver.ca / 604.829.4238
