We have the BEST NEWS to share!!!

Hi there Bowen Island,

BIRCH continues to work hard towards our Vision in which “Every Bowen Island Community Member has access to a safe and healthy home” and today have an exciting update to share.

With the support of the Bowen Island Municipality, BIRCH has partnered with Tomo Spaces to develop a phased development plan for Lot 1 of the Community Lands, undeveloped parcels owned by the Municipality.

The last public engagement on these lands was conducted in 2018 so it’s time to check in again and learn more about the Community’s vision for Lot 1. To do this we will running an online survey from April 26 until May 13. This short survey will help us develop a better understanding of current community priorities and what may have changed since we last asked about Lot 1 in 2018. 

Please do complete the survey and help us to create a plan that reflects the current needs and priorities of Bowen Island: https://bit.ly/bowenlot1 

And in case you missed it, we were thrilled to announce last month that BC Housing has confirmed their intention to proceed with funding the BIRCH rental housing project in Snug Cove! The Miller Road project (located beside the new health centre) will create 24 rental homes and is in partnership with the Lookout Housing & Health Society and Bowen Island Municipality. The link to the full announcement can be found on our website: www.birchousing.org

As always, thank you for your time and support.
