City of North Vancouver is looking for people to be part of the Balanced Housing Lab, a city-led imitative that will explore solutions to the housing challenges and in turn reduce congestion on the roads.
The housing lab, CNV says, will bring people together across sectors and backgrounds to develop and test solutions to complex challenges, such as poverty, affordable housing, sustainable community development, and climate change.
CNV is looking for people who can help develop potential solutions to the housing challenges. CNV will need 24-30 participants who can attend upcoming workshops and collaborate on possible solutions to the housing challenge. The participants would be those who work on the North Shore, but live elsewhere and commute to the city.
These could also be people in the development industry, developers, housing advocates etc, and people who can influence change such as policy makers. Those interested can take the online questionnaire to see if they would be interested.
“By working together to develop effective solutions to our housing challenges, we aim to improve the North Shore’s economy and business vitality, and ultimately reduce congestion and improve quality of life for all residents,” says CNV.
The lab will deliver new approaches for workforce housing on the North Shore through an innovative partnership between the City of North Vancouver, District of West Vancouver, Squamish Nation, senior levels of government, and other stakeholders.
