Thanks to the 20 or so Bowen Islanders who took time out of their weekend to join us for the launch event at Belterra. And a big thanks to the Belterra Community for use of their space.
We had some wonderful conversations about housing on Bowen, got some ideas and feedback on our upcoming application to the municipality (more news on that to come as we move forward) and got some great overall ideas on how to address the housing challenges on Bowen.
Some specific ideas (see photos below) were to find solutions for summer workers; creating a pilot project for a tiny house village with the BC Tiny House Collective and an educational institution; ideas on funding options and parameters for a rental housing project; and ideas for surveys of housing needs, current and future, that could be undertaken at a municipal level.
Thanks again to attendees for your enthusiasm and thoughtful discussion. I look forward to engaging again soon.
