A public hearing is being held to rezone parts of DL 114 to rezone for the Social Subsidized Housing.Please write to the District with your thoughts or attend the meeting.Currently two out of three members of the advisory board live out of town and aren't Tofino taxpayers or renters.There is no defined criteria as to who will qualify for the Subsidized Housing or if the water rates will also be subsidized.Part of the existing business plan is to sell building lots at $200,000.00 which is much higher than today's market prices.
Let's have a referendum before Tofino gets into a situation like Vancouver's Millenium project !!!
In response to a telephone question....I fully support subsidized housing for the elderly and disabled......
