BIRCH would like to thank the new mayor and council for their unanimous support in moving forward with the BIRCH affordable rental project on lot 3 of the community lands.

At the council meeting on Tuesday November 13th, Council resolved to authorize staff to enter into an “Agreement to Lease” with BIRCH to provide an approximate 0.480 hectare area of lot 3 for the project, and agreed to provide a letter for BIRCH’s funding application to the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation outlining BIM’s commitment to providing a portion of its Community Lands for a housing project.

Thank you mayor and council! And thank you Bowen Island for your support!
